Hi there, apologies if this is wrong place to discuss my question and feel free to move it somewhere else or delete.

I wonder what is average life span for the leaf starting from when it’s fully grown until it starts melting. My feeling is that in high energy environment it is about 2-3 weeks. Seems I can’t get it bushy/dense enough. Once new leaf fully grown I can see the old one starts melting already..

Might be a good idea to check the plant can reach your growing substrate, check temperature and test the water parameters, I had similar problems a couple of years ago and this action solved the melt. I use SafeStart, Bioboost and Easybalance every week and add a dash of liquid plant feed once a month. I have a 180l Fluval and a Fluval-407-External-Aquarium-Filter and change 30 litres once a month and do a full change every 6 months.
