JJenna Posted January 11 Share Posted January 11 My tank has had plants in it for 3 months now and all have been thriving, well except for the tiger lily, which has sprouted only 1 new leaf. In the past month I started to notice some of my stem plants floating in the tank. Anywhere from 1-4" of the stem from the root end were just mushy and fell apart when I squeezed them. I've lost almost half of my stem plants to date and have been looking at possible causes for it. I'm not necessarily looking for you to solve this problem for me but I need some suggestions on a couple of things. I have not changed one single thing in my tank that would point to this loss. I'm looking for some websites that have a more scientific bent regarding aquarium plants. Can anyone recommend some? The Barr Report and Planted Tank have yielded some possibilities. I don't want social media sites because .... well you know! I can still search out information from the field I worked in and only scholarly information is suggested...you can train Google it seems. Once I narrow down the possible culprits how long do you wait between making an adjustment and waiting to see effects? Two weeks? A month? For now I have snipped off the rotted part of the stem along with ~1" of viable stem and have them floating in my tank. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
