Don't be afraid to trim close to the substrate. Periodically replant the tops, discard the bottoms. Give each stem a bit of space. Post pictures and enjoy
i no longer have it. that was an old pic.How long has the plant been in your tank?
It looks like the plant suffered from a lack of light (during shipping?).
it also mean you are low on MgLower leaves coming off is usually an indication that your CO2 is a little off.
is there any way to test for Mg? and what's the desired range?it also mean you are low on Mg
While you don't need to, you can find out Mg levels by testing GH, measuring the calcium and subtracting the calcium from the GH reading (converted to ppm from degrees). GH is basically Ca+Mg. Appropriate levels somewhat depend on calcium, you don't want to have extremely high levels of magnesium and low levels of calcium as that can cause problems. A GH of about 6 is usually sufficient to grow most plants (and a 4:1 ratio of Ca:Mg seems to be the usual ratio between the two nutrients in most naturally occurring ground water).is there any way to test for Mg? and what's the desired range?
You know you are responding to a post from 2014, right?Which fert would you guys use for more demanding plants?
