Hi everyone, I grow plants for my LFS. The plants in MY tanks grow well, no problems.
However, when I take my plants to the LFS and they display them for sale they quickly degrade in quality. Many are looking pretty ragged after only a week or less.
LFS tanks are 55g, he has two T5HO bulbs over each of them. I give him my fertilize and I believe he uses it diligently. He has no CO2.
The ferts I give are a diluted form of what I use on my high tech tanks. Primarily KNO3, kh2po4, k2so4, csm+b; on the EI system.
I ran water tests on his tanks today and found:
--Last day before water change--
I'll bring my phosphate test kit tomorrow when I visit his shop.
Please look over the photos and tell me what you see. I'm stumped. I can imagine he has any nutrient deficiency because I don't in my tanks.
Perhaps it's his VERY high GH hardness? My GH is pretty low, so there is a difference.
The ludwigia & the nymphs have only been there for 6days. The water sprite 2 weeks. The swords have been there much longer.
