No, but it doesn't like something about your tank. Check your current parameters.

Normal would be that Kenya tree upright with more brown/purple last night was floppy and very dark, that's how it is now and flowering or whatever u call it, the amonia was ok, salt 1.023, po4 was good all where there ment to be and couldn't get reading on ph test it didn't change colour or few weeks ago when I used also, only thing is nitrate are high! Thinking about taking out bio balls I've heard they can keep nitrates up???

Kenya trees will live in almost any conditions. I tossed one in my almost completely dark sump about a month ago and it still looks to be doing well. They are by no means a gauge on how your tank is doing. Ph is important as is alkalinity. The things you mentioned are not "everything". High nitrates are also something to be concerned about.
What size tank is this? How many fish are in it? What kind of flow do you have? How about lighting?

Get a new one. Salifert makes good test kits. Standard lighting meaning what? Can you post a picture of the tank? What gph are the power heads?
