More data regarding your tank configuration would help. On the surface the initial analysis is low CO2, but if you are only dosing once a week this implies a non-CO2 tank. Not sure how to troubleshoot unless we clarify the nature of the beast.

Well, Dad should read this post and be aware that the drop checker needs to be in the green/yellow zone and can best be achieved by a pressurized system without the mess, smell and instability of yeast based systems.

CO2 injected tanks also have a higher nutrient demand so that it is possible that low nutrient concentration by the end of the dosing cycle has contributed to the lily's poor health. You may wish to consider dosing more frequently, but for the moment just add more CO2.

Cheers,
