    Mayaca fluviatilis

    I'm trying to clear something up about this plant. When I received it, it's tips were whitish and have stayed that way for a couple of weeks. I'm dosing iron 3x a week and it's growing okay. Some info' online confirms the tips should be whitish, another source said it should all be green. As...

    Specific plants and liquid carbon

    I'm thinking about trying these plants: Najas Guadalupensis, Hygrophila Corymbosa compacta, red Cabomba, red Ludwigia repens and Mayaca Fluviatilis, and wondered whether anyone's got any experience with them and liquid carbon? So far the only plant I couldn't grow with LC was Pellia but it's...

    Moss wall

    Can anyone give me a stop by step guide to putting a moss wall together, including what materials would be needed. I've had a couple of goes in the past but they were disastrous!

Can anyone tell me if this means they are just very young plants and need to mature a bit, or is there a chance I've...

    Damage or deficiency?

    Just done my weekly water change on my 180l planted tank and noticed two leaves, on two separate echinodorus species each have a mark on one of their leaves. The plants look fine apart from these marks, so I'm not sure if its damage or the first signs of a deficiency. I dose trace and potassium...

    Is this some form of hemianthus?

    I've a plant in my garden that looks very much like HC to my inexpert eyes, so I pulled some up and am having a go at emersed growing with it. Theres only a bit but hopefully theres enough for your more expert eyes to tell me if it is HC or not. It certainly grows the same way in the garden ie...
