It seems that for the best answers I always return here 馃榿 so here comes another question..

I have Lilaeopsis growing in my 10g walstad tank from the beginning. Growth has been slow, but steady. Resently I removed a driftwood and planted some more Lilaeopsis in its place.

Now all the new Lilaeopsis are either melting away, literally rotting or roots are coming off from the substrate. The original ones are steady and looking good.

You can see in the photo, one black spot in the background where the plant has melted completely.

Why is that?
Should I remove the melting ones or just leave them to melt and release nutrients? Any harm in that?

There might be some anaerobic soils under the driftwood causing the melt. Poke area to reduce the anaerobic soil.
Okay, this crossed my mind, but I poked and disturbed the substrate when I planted the new Lilaeopsis. Maybe I didn't do it properly or wide area enough.

Thank you again 馃憤馃徎
