Metallic green mushrooms turned brown?

My bright green mushrooms turned brown When I first got them, I only had 2 watts per gallon. I assume thats why they turned brown. Now I have 6.5 watts per gallon, (PC lighting), and they are still brown. I have had the new lights for 1 week now. Will the shrooms turn back to bright green, or am I stuck with brown ones now??

Thanks.

More than likely they will turn green again, but the process takes time, usually several weeks to a couple of months.
