What do you think is causing this type of growth in my Downoi?



I have it in a 55 gallon tank with ADA Aquasoil
I dose EI religiously
i have 4-55 watt 9325K GE PC bulbs on for 10 hours a day
I have pressurized CO2 with a pinpoint controller
My Ph is set for 5.7

HC is doing well
Utric is happy and spreading fast
But I am not sure why the downoi is growing with such large separation between the leaves.

What are your thoughts?

I think you might have to much light? try running 8 hours, and set your pH to somewhere around 6.4 ... What are your CO2 levels?

With the Aqua soil if I turn off my CO2 the Ph settles in at 6.5 to 6.6

And I just checked to confirm the 10 hours but i lied it is actually set for 8.5 hours a day.
