Deficiency ID please


My crypts are growing leaves with pretty severe curling on them. Image below. Anyone know what deficiency this is? Cryptocoryne Dewitt/Petchii (I have no idea which it is). The leaves are also very vertical.

Hello, maybe it is just an adaptation phase, is the petchii just arrived in this tank? The leaves on my petchi are quite vertical too.

Michel.

Not newly arrived at all, been there about 2 months and all the bronze leaves have grown in. The original leaves were green.

The older leaves do that on my crypt. 'wentii'. I know phosphate def. will cause the leaves to turn red/purple on green plants. Curling is seen with chlorine exposure (usually on the younger leaves). That said, they look like they are planted pretty deeply. It may be a response to transplnting and not a deficiency at all.
