    hello I been dealing with srunted curling twisted growth on my Pogostemon Stallata, Pogostemon Helfiri, rotala macandra mini butterfly, limnophilia sessiflora, limnophilia aromatica,rotala sp green,A.R,mermaid weed,rotala nanjenson and blyxa japonica. I think that's it. Lol

    EVERYTHING LED ME TO CALCIUM OR MAGNESIUM SO I STARTED TO DOSE 32G SEACHEM EQUILIBRIUM WEEKLY WITH WATER CHANGE. Sorry I didn't notice caps were on. Bottle says that should raise gh by 3dgh. So I tested 9gh is what i came up with. Its been 1 week and I still notice stunting. So I went down google and plant deficiency and it said calcium effects root growth. Well when I pulled up a stem of Pogostemon stallata the root morphology was horrible compared to how I have seen them. So I had some leftover 00 gel caps and filled them with EQUILIBRIUM and stuffed them into the substrate around the Pogostemon stallata. I'll keep ya updated. But if someone can point out something I missing I'd really appreciate it.

    Mine isn't the regular API OR SEACHEM or osmocote plus root tabs.. I took Seachem equilibrium which has calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium and made some root tabs outta that because its high in calcium and magnesium good for the roots.
