Need some help with plants
What would cause all plants to melt at the base? 3x times, I have bought plant packages, and every thing melts in 3 to 4 weeks at the bottom 2 to 3 in. the tops seem to do ok, not great. Have tried to trim the tops and replant them, its just the same thing all over. And I lose all red in plants they just go green. I cannot keep shrimp alive, all fish do fine. Mosses and java ferns do fine. Stems just melt.
