Since I added some extra temporary light and began fertilizing my plants, they have all taken off. The growth is amazing! That is...except my Amazon Swords. The leaves are all coming in very thin. They are very dark green and have 'tiger stripes' in them. Does anyone know what's wrong?

The only fert ingredient I'm missing in Phosphate...but that's because all the liquid fertilizers at the chain stores don't include phosphates.

The fertz I'm using:
Excel Flourish (organic carbon)
DIY CO2 (CO2)
Tetra Florapride (iron and potassium)
Kent Pro-Plant (iron and nitrogen, boron, magnesium)
Flourish (trace minerals)


I just started the Pro-Plant yesterday because I thought it might be nitrogen deficiency.

Well i only recently started fertilizing and I have yet to find phosphate at a local store.

I'm still learning about dry ferts.

In the meantime, I was just wondering whether it was phosphates or nitrogen causing the thin leaves.
