    Quick guide growing harder syngonanthus------------------
    I'm giving you this information

    so the fundamentals are co2/light/nutrients right?
    -wide range of plants
    but in taking syngonanthus into consideratioin there are some key water parameters you'd have to look at...


    for now forget co2/lighting/nutrients

    ph plays a vital role, at in the 5s and lower rio Uaupes has been known to flower
    kh iono but its got to be low for some reason

    now going into gh, not important
    co2, its beneficial
    lighting you only need so little, they will grow, id' say minimum 20 par
    ripped from someone else (Pikez)
    in their natural environment they are almost nutrientless, rainfalls and raises the ph, ph are in the 3s then raise to probably the 5s
    ripped online
    rio Uaupes has been document to flower in the 5s and below

    so nutrients, I've seen syngonanthus tolerate a wide range, but more is beneficial, excess is not

    tds, as low as you can get it
    treat like crs/cbs except focus that energy on growing the plant

    That's my quickguide for you guys
