It all depends on lighting ferts and substrate. What lighting do you have? What is your fertilization regime? What substrate do you have and more importantly what plants do you have? Many plants are a more dull green as opposed to the brilliant green plants that you are referring to.

Also believe it or not the K rating of your bulbs made a difference in how the color of the plants look.
