Staurogyne Repens is my Achilles heel

I have never had success with this "easy" plant.

Only tried it in low tech and it always dies off. I have recently set up my first pressurised co2 tank and thought I might finally be able to do it this time. I planted in vitro versions and they showed a bit of growth week one, week two they melted quite a lot but I assumed it was just adjustment.

Now in week three and this is what they look like. Yellowing with holes. I think it might be an NPT deficiency? I was dosing 2ml (15gal tank) tropica specialised a day but have now upped to 4ml so will see if that improves them.

Does anyone have any other advice though?

Neither did I :( not in High Tech and not in Low Tech... Beats me why it simply doesn't like me...
Some people claim it also is easy to keep emerged... It doesn't even like me for that... :(

I've been unable to keep it alive in the past as well, in high tec. Only tried it once though, but when a plant wont work for me, I just get another in its place :) But since then I did move to another area, so maybe I'll try again. Different water, different light, who knows this time ;P

I will say this plant for sure loves direct and strong light. If it’s under low light you need a lot of CO2 to make it happy. I started to have a low CO2 issue at one point and of all my stems they suffered the most. They also have insane root structures so if you don’t have much soil for them to root in I’m sure that doesn’t help.
