Hornwort Needle Shedding

Recommended Posts

I'm glad to see this topic come up.  I've never had a problem with HW shedding until recently.  When the HW cloud in my 29 gal.  was the predominant surface plant there was almost no shedding.   When the Anacharis  established itself on the surface, the HW began to suffer.

They shed alot when they get moved. Kind of like crypt melt. Best way to counter this is to get the tank parameters as close together as possible. Ph Gh Kh and temp are the most important ones. The more nutrients they have in the water the less they seem to shed.
