I killed my willow hygro!

So I went and pulld all my plants to rescape my tank and most of the plants had some algae on them.

So I decided to do a h202 dip. Well I dipped all my plants and once I got everything replanted it looked great. I propogated my favorite plant, the willow hygro, and was so happy to have a lot more stems of it planted on both sides of my tank.

It looked awesome. Well when i got home yesterday, I flipped on the lights and to my shock and disgust all the willow hygro is just about dead. Almost all of the leaves have turned translucent and not green. Has anyone else had any experiences with this? All other plants seem fine as of now. I'm just pissed.

Sorry for your loss. Dips are deceptively easy to slaughter plants.

At what dosage and duration was your dip?

I once did a redo on the sub and had my plants in a bowl of water during that time.
All of any leaf that was sticking out of the water died from drying out.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
