I assume you know about "crypt melt".

Are you growing new leaves?...

I like to think of it as there being a number of "approaches" to keeping aquatic plants.

One of those is the "high tech" approach with pressurized CO2, highly specialized aquarium lighting and a...

I wouldn't waste my money on flourite again. It's essentially no different than MTS, but it works it's way up through sand. >_<

So much of what I know about aquatic plant keeping has been directly derived from reading this forum that I appreciate any fresh, trialled perspective that is independent of this culture.

Put some in a pot, cap it with some sand, fill it with water, wait overnight and then test the ammonia levels.

Throw in some broth, a potato, and now we've got a stew goin', baby!

Right. Amano is a concept designer. Most people here are aquarists. Different goals.

He creates coffee table books--not living, breathing, sustainable habitats. :D

Basically, Amano's tanks aren't set up long enough to go anaerobic.

To be perfectly honest, it's kind of like how not everyone gets to drive concept cars.
