Ludwiga Ver. Pantanal
Glandulosa
and pogastoman stellata broad leaf.
tonina fluviatlas


my tonina belem branches from the bottom after I top and throw out the bottoms. Fluviatilas never branches

Pantanal hasn't seemed to branch from either bottom or tops (which I left in this time)..

Glandulosa occassionally seems to throw seedlings (* or a red plant long since evicted from the tank has.. ) but i can never get it to branch

and while the stellata reminds me of L. aromatica, the latter branches from everywhere all of the time, while the Stellata doesn't seem to branch ever.

help me please.

Refer to your other post and the issues you have had......... and wait......till those issues are addressed.
All the plants you have are fast growing and easy if you have decent CO2/nutrients.
But they are less tolerant if things are not right compared to some other plants.

You are right of course, but I am losing my mind. I have green thread? algae now and some surface stuff... the co2 drop checker is showing good color, the plants ae pearling.. all under the lower light, but any leaf that touches the surface gets yuk.

I am upping water changes. I'll add charcoal to filter this weekend... and I'll give another good trim, especially get rid of the mass of blyxa albertii which has grow from one corner to most of the back of the tank to see if lessening plant mass helps.

any other ideas? I am of course still dosing ei.
