These babies were fine last week. Nothing has changed. They all looked like the healthy picture now they're melting. What can be the issue? How can 1 cluster start dying when another cluster same tank is thriving. I ha

not sure, First thought is Phosphates. Mine are kind of doing similar things... mostly they're are barely growing and just trying to push out new baby plants. even the largest of the baby plants I was going to try and grow up and replace are shooting out new plants. Started realizing I may need to find a replacement plant type... which bums me out a little.

I hope not! I dose green leaf aquatics dry ferts 5cc/day and I'm trimming cutting plants back left and right. This came out of nowhere and like I said nothing has changed. It doesn't make sense but my ferns were looking so full and healthy.

Potassium. White growth on any water plant is from lack of Potassium and Java ferns have a higher need for that than most other plants. Hygrophila also are needy.

Where do you see white? I'm sorry maybe I'm missing it. All I see is black and they're disintegrating

Its not a pure white..but some leaves have that white tip necrosis. Eventually,when they die- they go to black. Potassium and iron are what most water plants don't get out of the local tap waters.
