Rescape and plant melt, why?

Hi, i have a no filter, no co2 bowl tank.

Spec
20cm diameter,
30 watt light,
amazonia soil,
local basic fert,
local bacteri starter and
bacteri house,

Plants
rotalla green and hair grass..

Fauna
1 nerite horn snail
4/5 amano shrimp
2 neon tetra

i just plant the rotala green around 1 week ago. And i did 85% WC every 3 days , give local ferts after WC. But these few days i notice.. some of the leave is melting and some float on the surface..

I wonder why?

Are leaves of rotundfolia round or more elongate? If round then they were grown emergent (out of water) and dropping leaves while transitioning to submerged growth is pretty normal.

Only other thing I can think of that will make a plant shed itís leaves is overdosing ferts.

Yes. Looks like submerged growth.

So in that picture all the ends of plants just rotted away and fell off?

And what is a bacteri house?

Oh.. it came with very long stem.. so i cut it and replant it.. it's okay right?

Then what happened with submerged plant.. they will melt but new leaf ussually grow back right?

Bacteri house is like hmmm.. like bacteri starter, in stone.. where the good bacteri will grow?

You should be fine. Nothing to worry about. Having a few leaves drop off and float to surface after cutting them that aggressively and planting is normal.

Those were grown underwater and they will just take a bit to adjust to new water conditions and root in. If it follows typical R. Rotundifolia growth rate you be thinning it out in about 3weeks or it will take over whole bowl.
