@sushiwaitress very rarely! I'm a self-confessed underwaterer that's one of the reasons I'm terrified of trying to grow seeds. This guy is upstairs so gets less water than most, once every 3 weeks maybe? Wetted through. I imagine this contributes to the redness. When I bought it, it did struggle for a while with the bottom leaves going mouldy so I'm happier with this, though I should probably up my game a little!
