that sounds like a good idea! I will try it next time. I left the mother plant roots in there too, I can't wait until it grows back!! I love this plant.
I wonder if the crustiness on the old leaves is caused by biogenic decalcification. I have been reading about that and it seems to fit what I'm seeing ... crusty white deposits on the pearlweed leaves and a tiny bit on the glass walls too. do you know if pearlweed does biogenic decalcification? If so I bet that's what is causing my leaf crustiness. from what I read, biogenic decalcification seems to happen for certain plants in high-light, low-CO2 tanks ... and mine fits that description totally... right next to a southwest window with a lot of direct light and no CO2 system. but I love to see the sunlight on my plants so I have to figure out something that doesn't involve moving the tank. I started adding flourish excel last week so maybe that will help a little until I can figure out the CO2 thing without blowing everything up. :)
