after reading up on a few things... im starting to think it was an overdose of excel... i guess i did it without even realizing it.. but the plants were yellow and then browning on the tips (swords) and my tall long crips went red and then brown... they almost look like they were melting.. any thoughts?
Sounds like you have hit the nail on the head.
I have heard that excel will cause Crypts to "Melt", often they will recover unless the dosing is "excessive"
you may also wish to start dosing with "LeafZone"
