Try the green. Order from a place or person where you know that's what you'll get. I got a wad of various Cabombas from Petsmart (the salesperson kept adding and adding to the bunch so I ended up with a ton for $3). The green stems are doing really well, other stems not so well. Like you, my original purple never did a thing and that was with 2 T5HO's running. I do think high temp impairs the plant (see Byron's plant profile). My original tank temp was around 80F. Now I keep it at 76F.
