    Hi , my name is Rinu,
    I was using branded ferts until now and all my plants were growing relatively good. Now switched to diy ferts. Now my anubias new leaves are small curling downwards, and whitish.

    Anybody? any opinions?

    Also i read that small bended leaves can be a symptom of calcium deficiency. My water is very soft.
    Ca -4ppm
    Mg- 8.7ppm
    Total hardness -45 ppm
    Gh- 2.5dgh
    I heard ca-mg ratio should be 2:1 to 4:1. My water has reverse of it. Will that have anything to do with it.earlier i was dosing branded ferts there might be calcium included in it. So there were no problems. Now since dosing diy there is no calcium dosed. But mg is being dosed. Will dosing mg with ca already deficient cause such white new leaves.

    Now i bought caco3 and start ed dosing 3ppm weekly to increase calcium.


    Anybody? any opinions?
