    This is the 2nd week since I started with DSM.
    Just an bit of info:
    Using a T5 2x24W light on for 12hrs.

    These few spots are looking bad. It looks like stringy. Some dry leaves have fallen off.
    Everything else is looking good.
    Any ideas on what's going wrong?



    Have some pics (sorry if there bad).

    Mix micros in a spray bottle and give them a spritz daily.

    It may be too much water, try to just have high humidity but no pools, so you dont have parts of the plant growing submersed and others emersed.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Cripsino and Chopsticks.

    Chopsticks. I just took out some water. I have the front of the tank raise a bit so more water goes towards the back. There's a slope.
    I actually have a good deal of humidity.

    I do spray the staro in the back a bit because I see that the leaves get a bit dry.
