Hey All,

I missed this one at its peak because it happened during Christmas and life was rather hectic at that time.


I found this one today (the second flower that I know of)

Wow, nice. I have one that is suffering heavily. Leaves are pale and don't grow much at all.

Uhm... Sometimes I water with some miracle grow.:oops:
I grow it in a mix of Flora Base and decomposed Magnolia leaves with a little bit of sand.

Is it possible that my setup is suffering from lack of nutrients due to the uncontrolled growth of algae. I'm thinking the algae were sucking up all the nutrients in the tank. I kept a betta fish in the setup and I fed him often, them fish flakes have a lot of nutrients plants can use. Not only that but I fertilized with miracle grow once or twice a month, although weekly. But then you also get the waste products of the betta fish himself.

I'm using Miracle Grow, but I only add a very tiny bit every other week or so. It's potted in some old Aquasoil Amazonia.

Yeah, it can grow submersed. I'll have to check if I have a sideshoot right now.
