    C. Crispulata var Balansae (tropica in vitro) - not growing?

    Hi all, You can't beat experience. I'm not going to enter the CO2 debate, I'm not a CO2 user and I don't have any practical experience of its addition. All I can say is that I've grown a number of easy Cryptocoryne spp. without CO2, and while their growth definitely hasn't been optimal...

    Hi all, It <"might be the glutaraldehyde"> causing the black patches? They definitely look less healthy than they should be, but I've never had anything quite like that.

    What could cause leaf edge curling in frogbit + friend?

    Hi all, I'd be tempted to ignore it as, "just one of those things". If plant health begins to look compromised Sounds a good idea. Definitely more nutrients are available to the plant in the soil based substrate. My guess would be we are somewhere in the nitrogen (N) and/or potassium (K)...

    Plants looking sorry for themselves in the last 2 weeks

    Hi all, No, they don't look great. The problems, in diagnosing what may be wrong with them, are: These are old leaves, so it is possible they are still present from the time when the plants were produced emersed. You would really need to know what the new shoots, (that grow now), or the...

    Rotala Rotundifolia Stunted Growth

    Hi all, No, I don't. For most nutrients you can equate the amount you added with the amount that is plant available, but it isn't like that for iron, due to the number of ferric (iron III) compounds which are insoluble. This means <"we have to use a chelator"> to ensure iron (Fe) ion...

    Hi all, The 24 ppm NO3 will be the minimum value that they recorded. Because you live in the SE of England (where you've had a large population for a long time) you have a considerable input from treated waste water, and even the aquifers will contain high levels of nitrate. The same would...
