Had my bulbs for a week or two. My partner had to (jokingly) ask why I was keeping a dead mouse in the aquarium. Just some hair algae that came attached 🙂 Just started noticing some growth towards the bottom of the bulbs. Since the stems and leaves will be naturally pink/bronze, I wasn't sure if they were roots or stems, so I flipped them over to point up just in case. But what do you think? Should I flip them back down?
These stem plants, which I do not know the name of, were planted about a month ago. Holes have been developing and are now present in many of the leaves, but the newer leaves appear to be,, at least generally, hole-less (image). In searching, the reason for holes is insufficient K+. But, if this were the case, this plant must be much more sensitive than others in the tank because they do not have holes. Could the leaves be on the way to falling off due to adaptation to the plant being planted in the tank? The water parameters are 75 degrees temp, KH 4 drops (71.6 ppm), GH 9 drops (161.1 ppm), pH 7.8, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 20 ppm. My second question has to do with roots sprouting from the stem (image). In searching, I found that this is "normal" or, alternatively found that the sprouting is due to insufficient light, Again, if it were insufficient light, this plant must need quite a bit of light, as the other plants are thriving, Appreciate any comments on these two issues.
