After a several weeks of struggling to get my lighting/CO2/ferts right, I am now starting to see some real progress. I am still battling with BBA, but the plants are growing visibly from day to day.
I have noticed that one of my Jungle Val plants is propagating. It has two smaller plants growing about a half-inch from the main base. Should I seperate these daughter plants from the main plant, or leave them where they are.
Also, my red melon sword is really starting to show some progress. It has grown two nice big brand new leaves in the last week alone. I have noticed that some of the older, smaller leaves are now not getting much light and are withering. Should these leaves be removed? How does Melon Sword propagate? Could I simply plant a trimmed leaf in a different spot?
