Dane, If those are from mine, mine do very well, but I have a KH of 1. I am not sure if that makes that much of a difference, but mine is deep red and grows like a weed. I hav metal halides and does micro/macros and pressurized CO2.water is kind of hard. 11 degrees kH. pH is at 6.4 while in the day. co2 is almost 4BPS. i'm going to up my CSM+B to 5ml 3x week instead of 2ml. that's 9ml more a week. almost two whole capfuls. might not seem like a big increase, but i guess it is.
3.05 wpg to be exact. i don't understand why it looks like that. i did really well with it before, but lately, it's been discouraging me. yea, i thought about the glandulosa. it looks a bit like the red temple, and i wanted something a little different looking as i have some on the other side of my roundfolia.how much light do you have over that puppy?
I am not worries about you not doing me proud...I see other stuff in there doing well. Maybe you can try a Ludwigia glandulosa in its place?
i haven't uprooted the stems since the first time i've planted them.My guess would be lack of light, or stress from uprooting the plant. The bottom shaded parts of my stems look like that, and the whole stem will also look like that after I have uprooted it. Macrandra IME seems to do MUCH better when the roots are left undisturbed.
