I've got something like this going too - I'm calling it "the black death." Mine were gorgeous, then I started a new tank, and took only cuttings, re-tied them to the same drift wood - and now they're disintegrating. And it appears to be spreading to other plants it touches - a crypt, specifically.

I don't think this is a deficiency. it looks more like a disease.

Hi there. I've had the same exact problem anytime I've ever tried to grow java fern. It's like parts of the leaves on all of the leaves, (atleast on my plant) turns "black and dry." I had a friend who tried growing it too and the same result.

Re: Unknown damage---Java Leaves

I introduced Java Fern to a brand new tank.
It is nearly done cycling, and during that time (22 days) they have gone from super lush to what it looks on the above pic.

But they are not dying. In fact, there are a lot of new sprouts growing from the leaves themselves. As if the leaves' twigs had become rhizomes.

I posted about this in this thread on www.ovas.ca

See on the first picture, the leaves have become brown and even started to decompose.
