Hi

ive noticed the roots on my frogbit, look dirty compared to some the pictures I’ve seen. Is this ok, or is there some kind of deficiency in nutrients going on? Btw there’s plenty of new growth happening....

Ramshorn snails eat frogbit the fine hairs extending out from the taproots but not the taproot itself, and never the leaves. Could be another snails though. Also older leaves can also just get old and deteriorate.

Hi all,

The plants new leaves look pretty healthy, so it will be either snails, old leaves or burn marks. I'd just pinch the damaged ones off.

My ramshorns eat the actual leaves, little pieces chewed here and there, I've seen them actually attached to the leaf rather than the roots.

Cheers for the replies, frogbite growing so well, I’ve just removed the damaged stuff. And starting to hand pick out the uninvited guests.
