Just my opinion, but this could be a lighting phenomenon. The idea being plants are better lit outside in the sun and it's naturally darker indoors where they're relatively shaded.

Good try hehehe it's clearly a texture glitch.. the same happens with some decors from Seasons and get together. It looks very unsightly
