Well, I bought them as a tube plant from Petco, only no taller than 4". About a month or so after, they have grown more than 1 foot tall with 4" leaves. Couple of weeks ago, the plants were showing signs of potassium deficiency. Older leaves would have holes and they would turn yellow and fade away. Then, I doubled by root tab applications and increased liquid fert dosage to my water column. I didn't have just potassium to add by itself. However, my root tabs and liquid fert contain potassium. However, this only tends to slow down the process. Ultimately, as of now, all of the older leaves are gone. However, there are many side shoots by the stem. So far, the newer leaves look healthy. Hopefully, the plants would be restored to their former glory....
