On this one yes, it should.

Nope, medium light as with the majority of my neos.

Standard Shutenno should have very dark, brownish burgundy roots. Between seed variation, and cultural conditions, this can be somewhat darker or lighter. I don't think I've ever heard of a verified Shutenno with solid green root tips with no red/brown at all. Has your plant flowered for you yet?

Also, what color is the very base of the stem? Shutenno also has the distinctive characteristic of having very dark pigmented stem bases, almost black, similar to what you see on my Ikaruga.

In terms of level of light, what I've heard is that Shutenno should be grown in medium to medium-high light to get the best color and characteristics.
