    Can any one suggest what I need to do to solve this problem?
    These plants have some small holes and on the older leaves they turn transparent and then melt. Some of the older leaves also turn a white-ish yellow color as well.
    I purchased the plant on ebay, the seller called it hygrophila sp low grow. I don't think it the correct name??

    I dose EI
    KNO3 7.5 ppm per dose
    KH2PO4 1.3 ppm
    K2SO4 2.6 ppm
    CSM+B 0.3 ppm
    50% WC once a week, some times I'll skip a week.
    CO2 injection
    Twinstar 900s 6.5 hrs a day

    Looks like hygrophila polysperma. Trim it shorter, give it some time to examine new growth.
