Hygro Polysperma withering


so my tank has grown hygro polysperma easily for a few years now but now i am getting wrinkly leaves and they are all pointing up instead of out. I know this is a deficiency of some nutrient, i just am not sure what. my first guess is nitrogen deficiency, but i'm not sure. Anyone know what is causing this?

unfortunately i don't have a nice camera, i will still try to get a pic with my phone though. As for color it looks good, green on the bottom 2/3 and tan/gold/pink on the top 1/3. (keep in mind i have 216w T5-HO over a 120g.) so any thoughts?

well it sounds like Ca+ defency. But the fact is I have NEVER heard of one reported case of this and Tom Barr would agree but check this plant defency chart out:

Also I have this same plant and it seems to do and look so much better in lower light, this form and the 'sunset' version of it as well..but other than those two, sounds odd..so since you have been growing this for some time, something must have changed..anything you can think of?

What's your dosing regime? Co2 source? Any algae issues? Has anything changed? Water temp?

Its gonna be pretty hard to tell you what might be going on by only knowing the leaves are wrinkly and the tips are curling upwards.
