Hmm.....I bought it as a pink rose bubble about 1.5 years ago and I have never thought that but perhaps some truth lies within thank you matty. It's color is a very soft pink with a pinkish foot.

bleaching can be caused by a number of things, not enough light, unstable water params... etc. what are you testing with?

I think it's bleached. If you can, put only blues on. Does it still glow? It's most likely just a slightly bleached rose that never really recovered. That would explain why it's not growing.
