| || | well, I must admit, the remains stems looks longer and a bit thicker. The last times "this" started this way and then all the plant turned brown and died. Now I'm using two Aqueon 18" Floramax (15 watts) since 5 days ago, instead than the two "Day light Full Spectrum", the Floramax is less brighter but seems it's the correct spectrum

Most people mask this by putting a smaller plant, or a decoration in front of stem plants.
