If you use green, then I believe you should also set the color to white
so that the color contrast is good and promotes readability. White on
green and white on red gives sufficient color contrast. On the other
hand, black on green and black on red is poor color contrast.

I wrongly said "bright green" because I was looking at a test and
copied+pasted from another test.

So, I would set color to white and the pass-fail conditions sentence
would be:

<p>Test passes if the background of the page is green and if
there is <strong>no red</strong>.</p>

or

<p>Test passes if the page has a green background and if there is
<strong>no red</strong>.</p>
