Plant growth questions


Dirted 125 reduced ei very low light injected co2 with good flow

Crypts and others showing deficiency. Mainly pinholes. Should I double k2so4?

Nitrates are as high as I'd like them, any higher and I get worried.


I already added root tabs under two crypts.

I already reduced light duration due to slight signs of Gsa and I turned up co2 as well.

Any other tips?

Pin holes are often K, so yes, I would dose a bit more. If the problem continues look for other things.
What is in the root tabs?

Post some close up photos of each of the plants. Many times you can visually diagnose an issue based on the type of damage and more importantly the location on the plant.

I trimmed all the deficiencies off so I cannot get a picture. I've increase So4 dosing and we will see if the problem persists.
