Default Rotala macrandra : is this one normal?

Hi everybody!

Here is a pic of my Rotala Macradra.
As you can see, there are white nerves on the leaves.

Do you consider that normal or is there a lack of something?
If there is a nutrient lack, do you have any idea of wich one?

Mine does the same thing and I'm pretty sure there are no nutrient deficiencies.

I doubt anyone would accuse it of being unhealthy

If you can get your macranda to grow and stay like that pat yourself on the back!

I was already dosing a chelated mix before and now I add KNO3 and a kind of fleet enema for PO4.
For the moment I add Fe and chelated mix every day and PO4 and KNO3 every 3 days.

I try to stay around 1ppm PO4 and 10ppm NO3, the K follows the nitrogen with KNO3.
