Funky stelleta... SUPER FUNKY!

I think all my techno music is making my stelleta grow funnY? It is growing all sideways and stuff and the tops get real full and branch and i HATE IT its getting so ugly, and its all warped looking, i want it to get full and look pretty . The color is great, and it is real healthy, its just all warped growing... so is it the techno musik or what? Also, i have a problem with plants throwing roots out the stems like crazy, how do you get this to stop it looks like CRAP! Thanks...

Mine does something similar when it reaches the surface of the tank with no musical enhancements.

Lots of plants throw out tons of stem roots when healthy. Nothing to do about it.

That seems to be a side effect of moving the stems around...planting new stems, etc. You could always let them grow out a bit and see if you can put something along the lines of a midground plant to hide the distortions and roots. Some stargrass or L. cardinalis could work (although the latter might not grow tall enough).

It sounds like a fert problem to me. Post your tank parameters and fert schedule so someone can give you specific suggestions.
