that was my first thought but all of the lighting in that room is white or has like a blue glass around it.

there is a red table and a dull red carpet but im not sure if the smoke would have really refracted that light coming off it.

idk it was weird, maybe im crazy

no...
you can, but you're probably dead by the time you finish your bowl.
is it just me, or does blue mist have a kinda...light bluish tint to it?
and...
usually if a tobacco is honey based, the smoke will be a little darker than if it is glycerin based.
maybe that's just me though.

Nakhla has a slight blue tint becasue of the type of tobacco it is, and how it is unwashed. For those of you who smoke Cigars you probably have seen all types of blue or greenish smoke.
You said you had a red rug and red carpet, that's probably enough red for the light to reflect off of and maybe it looked as if it tinged your smoke. There's really only a couple possibilities, and if you water wasn't red it had to be the light. I guess it could be in your hose or your port or heart but i doubt anything in there could add color.

anyone ever try to add flavored food coloring into the mix? drop a few things of the food safe dye? that could be a very cool effect, usually i smoke at night with my radio on, i hooked up about 10-15 led lights to my speakers and as the bass hits in any song or any higher note is played the leds flash so its a cool effect while smoking (it would look cooler if i had an actual led housing) im trying to find a way to connect it to the hose lol

Wow... ok.

This has been discussed many times and I would like to clear some things up.
Sadly adding food coloring to the water, shisha or anything in between will not change the color. Good thinking though.

It is not from juice dripping down into the base. That would not change anything. And have no more effect than food coloring would. (see also: none)

It is from the ambient reflected light in the room. When water vapor is that dense it becomes visible and with this the light refracted through it/ off of it also becomes more visible (see also: clouds). Since the vapor is not actually solid the light passes partially through and is redirected by the water, thus more of the "smoke" takes on the color than just the side facing the dominant color in the room.

ya i understand that is what it should be but i would have expected other colors from what is around the room, idk maybe its just that the red stuff in the room is stronger, idk

It's the light reflecting from the red hue that dominates the room's color scheme.

whoops, thought it did not post the first time. That was not worth typing out twice and in different phrasing.

Anyways see below for actual post.

Red is known by psychologists and those that study psych (like myself) to be a color that attracts the eye more than any other. Also it is considered "more visible" meaning that at a lower concentration it will still be more recognizable than a different color.

As Juno said, it's the dominant color in the room so it makes sense that it would be the most visible in the smoke. The others are reflected but not as strongly.

Billy, support your claim. You have said the same thing twice without even elaborating. Why would the juice change the color at all? The juice is what is being smoked in the bowl along with the leaves so why would it dripping down the stem (and thus not getting smoked) changed the color?

i figured out the refraction was correct, at least tonight

i could see how in theory it would since its being steamed as apposed to burn

i knew all that about red just was surprised how it refracted
