It's most probably lack of PO4Just saw today that one of replanted ammania didn't build a single root for a week. Starting to think my levels of phosphate are to low. What you think?
Personally I'd lower kH to approx 2-3 deg. If you won't be able to add more CO2, your plants may start to release the nitrogen in ammonia form and very likely you will have an outbreak of algae. To avoid it, lowering the dose of NO3 (which will decrease the hunger for CO2) may be an option.Can someone help me how to up more the co2
By lowering kH your water will become more acidic at the same amount of CO2, this will help with the uptake of Fe which in effect help with the uptake of NO3.What positive thing will be lowering of KH?
And if I decrease their hunger for co2, will it not lead to not so healthy plants?
Hey Ivan, as other users mentioned (and I definitely agree with them) your plants are generally healthy and in my opinion you should avoid large changes in fertilising regime, you only need some fine tuning. Doubling the EI is a huge change for a tank with generally healthy plants. Imagine you're healthy person and double the food you eat daily - I believe effect may be very similar.I will double ei dose from today and will dose every day to see, if something change.
There is yet another thing which came to my mind: whenever I see curled/twisted leaves or stems I look at the levels of Ca/K/Mg - these three ingredients (plus tiny bit of Chloride) are responsible for the pressure within the plants tissue so this may be the case as well - but you'll need to achieve correct levels experimentally. I personally keep approx 4:1 Ca:Mg and then fine tune K.look at ammania gracialis
