If you grow your aquarium plants at optimal light levels and the proper temperature, provide the proper pH and water hardness as well as supply them with all the needed nutrients you will probably never see plant diseases or deficiencies. Incorrect care is often the main cause of stunted growth and plant damage.Here I will discuss the different problems we encounter with plants, their causes and remedies.
The plants stay much smaller and grow more slowly than
plants fertilized with CO2. Rough Calcium deposits on the
leaves. Breakdown of the pH system causing a rise in pH.
A lack of CO2 can arise even with optimal care. All
plants use CO2 in their respiration process and it is
difficult to maintain an equilibrium. Vigorously Aerated or
agitated water increases CO2 loss, as the gas escapes into
Regularly fertilize with CO2 and try to limit the amount of aeration and water agitation in your tank
