    I planted DHG in about a week ago. It's sending out some runners but is also turning yellow-brown in some parts. Could this be due to the plant adjusting to my water parameters or is there some other cause for concern?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I think you should expect some of that as a phase over the first few weeks. The presence of runners is a good sign that things are adapting. Keep doing the good things, plenty of water changes early on, make sure nutrients are present, don't overdo the length or intensity of the photoperiod. Looks like it's coming along!

    As Chris said,
    I agree, its just having a bit of a melting stage since it was grown in a different environment.

    Thank you for the advice! 3 bps CO2, 6hr photoperiod, 30% biweekly water changes and weekly dosing of Seachem flourish, hope those will do just fine:)

    Mine is doing the same thing right now. Planted it a week and a half ago. The existing "leaves" are yellowing some, but I have a lot of new green growth at each plant and they're sending out runners. I'm chalking it up to the new environment for the plants. As long as you're getting spreading growth, things are good!
