When I initially planted I trimmed the roots to be 1 inch long. I read somewhere to do that. Hopefully that was correct.

A number of the crypts melted. I read that is common and they may come back. However, currently I am having issues with holes in the leaves and then dissolving from there. Does this indicate a Potassium issue? If so, how much do you increase the dose by? XX percent?

For the smaller swords, there are places where it looks like they are cut. Is this the "brittle" that people talk about? What nutrient does this tie too?

Some of the leaves of the plants are turning under. Calcium issue? How much to increase the dose?

Thanks
Frank
