Anubias leafs dying

Hi,
I’m currently in the process of doing my first dry start. The last couple weeks I’ve noticed some of my Anubias leafs appear to be dying / discolouring. The rhizomes look firm and healthy. I did wonder if it’s because I added a tiny bit of ferts to my sprayer thinking it would help out the plants not in soil.

Should I remove the leaves?

I only added them cuz I wanted every thing to have a chance of establishing before it got flooded. I plan to flood it the end of next week which will be the sixth week

Hi all,

Yes, fertiliser burn. It has similar symptoms to the leaves drying, because in both cases the water has been sucked out of the leaf and you get localised cell death.

If it is a humidity effect the edges of the leaves are where you get the symptoms, but with fertiliser burn it is where the fertiliser solution has sat on the leaves
