Hey guys,

I tried searching for this, but I can't seem to find an answer. My java ferns seem to be 'fading' at the tips. I have three plants in 2 tanks and they are all doing the same thing. An old leaf, or a new leaf, will be a nice bright green color, except at the triangular tip where it'll be a dull, dark green. It grows too slow to be sure, but I think it is slowly creeping from the tip to the rest of the leaf.

I figure I'm missing a nutrient. Maybe too little light, but its Java fern, aren't they low light? I'm hoping its just a nutrient I can add for a quick fix. Ideas???

Thanks!

Not light, probably is potassium. I have the same problem. Mine hasn't consumed the whole leaf yet and it's been like that for a few months. The leaves are still growing with normal color, still having the dark tip and some have a more light transparent color.
