No. Not if dosed according to directions.

Having said that, I've no idea if this might occur due to some other conditions in the aquarium causing some sort of interaction with Flourish...can't say. I have never experienced any colouration after adding Flourish. It is brownish as a liquid but it dissipates into the aquarium water immediately.

Just twigged into something here, Chris. If you have "green" looking water, I would assume it is an algae bloom. And that is due to light. The light is too intense and/or on too long.

And I'm assuming zof was being humourous.

It isn't green, just don't want it to become green.
