Its coming along. My first planted tank was low tech, and when something happened to a plant, it melted or needed leaves removed, it was almost not worth it to try to regrow.

If a stem only recovers at the tip, figure it will take a month for it to reach the top of the tank, replant, then another 2 months til it fills in again. That is alot of work.

If you upgrade to CO2, the new stems will be at the top in a week or so and you can propagate and create new stems which will soon be at the top again.

IMO, either upgrade to CO2 or order new stems. I've never seen that degree of melt before. I think that kind of melt might be caused by stress from shipping. (Too hot)
