Hi all,
I've recently bought a new plant and it's showing some signs of nutrient deficiency: wrinkled leaves. I think those nutrient deficiency charts are wrong- but this plant is confusing me because all my other plants not showing any signs that I can see of any problem (see the healthy plant photos attached minus the staurogyne :(. Has anyone grown this plant before? Final note- my water is hard, about 14 dGH, but Magnesium is still a bit low. 5ppm not 10ppm. So I mixed up a solution of Magnesium Sulfate and I can dose that if people think that's an issue. But the ferts regime is working nicely for everything else so I'm reluctant to change it completely.
1. 100l tank, 70cm long, 50cm deep, 35cm wide.
2. CristalProfi greenline 701
3. 2x Twinstar 900S (yes I know this is a lot, however I have nearly no algae and I'm waiting for my 90-p to come)
4. JBL Volcano mineral plus Tropica soil. HOWEVER, currently the Staurogyne brown is in its pot- I was going to wait to plant it out when my new tank comes. This could be part of the problem BUT I also have Limnophila "vietnam" which is doing fine in its pot.
5. Co2 green-just about yellow
6.Water change,
Sunday- JBL NPK double dose and Seachem Iron, Wednesday-Seachem Potassium
Week two,
Sunday- Seachem Potassium and Seachem Iron, Wednesday Seachem Potassium

7. Every two weeks water change.
8. Microsorum orange narrow, Pogostemon octopus, Cryptocoryne spiralis tiger, C. Retrospiralis, C. hobbit, Rotala Hra, Rotala colorata, hairgrass, Helanthius tenelus, mini taiwan moss, hyrgryoza aristata, red root floater, salvinia.... There's a lot in there probably missed something.
9. Amapa tetra, Red stripe tetra, Kuhli loaches, Faunus ater var. "Cappuccino", Oryzias profundicola

Finally I do have an R.O. scape that I could move the plant into if you think it prefers soft water.
Here's some info about it;
  • 5 - 15cm High

  • Temp. 20-29°C
  • light requirement normal
  • pH 5,5 - 7,5
Thanks all ;)
A new, rare and very nice color variant of the easy to maintain Staurogyne. The species forms strong brown to cognac-colored leaves with some strong structure under water. Even with moderate lighting, it grows rather flat and rather not in height.

ps. The tank looks a bit overgrown- this is it last year same time. The pieces of wood just lying there are for the next tank.
But I'm getting ready to take it down. Need to solve this problem first!
