Django, PM some of the experienced people with tanks you admire. They might respond with a lot of good info. That's what I did and it's been helping me (admittedly a newbie to live plants) quite a bit and I've still got quite a ways to go.

Hope that helps. And I fear I may have hijacked karawr's thread... apologies...

I have had purchased Java Fern 'melt' on me.

It is known as an easy plant but it does seem to sometimes 'melt' when it changes tanks.

In my case I eventually cut off all of the stems that didn't look healthy and it seemed that the Java Ferns then shot out a bunch of new healthy leafs in short order.

I had to prune my lush big Java Fern that I bought back but once I did it seemed to take off.
