Looking for advice...

I recently bought Amazon sword plant and after couple of days it starts to look like this (see pictures). I don't know if this is some kind of definciency or something else.
I dose pottasium, phosphorus, iron, flurish and trace every other day. Excel everyday.
Java fern and anubias getting wrinkled edges and some holes in leaves too.
Can it be manganese deficiency?

Hi OlaNowak,

Welcome to TPT!

If you have only had the plant a few days (or sometimes a couple of weeks) it is transitioning from emerged growth to submerged growth. Most sword plants, java ferns, and several other species are grown in large greenhouses in FL. They grow much faster out of water so the growers produce them that way. Unfortunately the leaves that plants grow when emerged have a very thick cuticle layer that does not allow those leaves to 'breath' underwater. What you are seeing is the plant 'transferring' the nutrients from the emerged grown leaves and moving it to new submerged grown leaves. This is common for most species that are grown emerged.

Hi @OlaNowak,

They are doing the same thing as the amazon sword it just that the leaves of the anubias and java fern are "tougher" and lasting longer under water.
