brittle stems and thin leaves?
Any common issues that are known to cause brittle stems and thin leaves? Ive got a few plants in a 'high tech' tank that the stems are super easy to break and the leaves on a Tiger Lotus are very thin. I also have slow growth in this tank with what should be fast growers.
Plants are Stauro porto velho, Sunset hygro, Limno aromatica, red Tiger lotus, blyxxa ( grows awesome-no problems with it ) Crypt lucens ( also grows pretty well--only a little BBA from time to time with the slow growth )
EI dosing with GH Booster and Epsom salt added, 2x24W T5HO for 8 hrs, pressurized CO2 with yellow drop checker ( approx 3 bps ) Aquasoil II
Ph 6.5ish, gH and kH very low--1-2 degrees. temp is 77*F
