Ludwigia rotting :[
It seems that some of the stems on my ludwigia is rotting. :[ They're turning brown and break off with a slight pull. Can I trim them off below the rotting point and still expect it to grow back? How can I fix my poor plant?
Did you just buy them?
Trim them! Let's say the bottom of the stem starts rotting then give it some spare room along the stem and then pinch them off, plant the pinched off parts (with space inbetween) in the gravel they will root down that way.
If your tops are rotten, pinch of the tops and leave the stem in the gravel to root down better.
give more lighting???
How much do I need? I have two 10 watt CFLs. :[
how big is your tank??? plants rot for 3 reasons. 1 not enough light,2 not enough fert and 3 algae grows on he leaves and kill it causing it to rot.
I've been dosing every five days with Seachem Flourish comprehensive. I need to get root tabs. I don't know if it's algae. I haven't had my tank for that long.
The lightbulbs are 10 watt 6500k daylight CFLS. Forgot that part. ;x
My banana plants are doing pretty well. They're both getting new sprouts and the current leaves are coming in huge. Not too sure on the anubias.... I think my tank my have algae. Iunno.
I noticed the anubias as some brown on some of the leaves. Some leaves also look kinda variegated. o.O Can underwater plants... do that?
yup they can.sometimes it's spot algae. low light plants that get too much light can get spot algae but ostly the ottos,snails, pleco or shrimps will take care of it.
I'll try to get a good picture of my plants to give a better idea.
