Problems with plants judged from their leaves...
« on: December 30, 2010, 02:01:04 PM »

Hi All!

I was waiting for someone to provide the info on how to judge about the problems plants have by their leaves. Actually I found a nice picture which summarises this info. Although I have no idea if someone already posted this picture on the forum I will assume the risk of posting it here (maybe without double posting). Take a look and maybe it might become very useful in determining what is the cause for the problems you might have in your tank with your green friends.

Unfortunately I am not able to provide you the info on the copyright owner of the picture as I have found the direct link to the image but what I could say I am not the author of this image. Smiley

And to add to this information I am eager to link you to a site which has some sort of profile information about many aquatic plants - (Link is not visible to guests. Please register to view.) . Again I assume that it might be of some interest to you.

I am sorry if the info has already been mentioned here so correct me if I am wrong.

I guess it is for me too in some way but would I go buy the product that the plant needs?  Probably not!  I would just buy a new plant! LOL!  Much cheaper to replace the plant IMO!  BUT it is a very interesting chart. Wink

Just changing a plant won't resolve the problem and basically one finds him/herself with a problematic plant again. :-) I consider it is worth to "fight" a bit for any plant in the fishtank.

Buying plant nutrition that you add once a week shouldn't be that bad Smiley But then again, I should go take a look at the prices here before I go saying things like this!! x'D

Yes, I agree, the price should be reasonable. I found out that just giving flourish excel is not enough to my plants - there should be something else to help my plants. So I will have to look into some plant nutrition additionally.

You could try out some different brands and see which work better! Smiley

Actually I think I would buy something from Seachem to compliment Excel (maybe just Flourish) and then see results and if not I could try already some other brands as you've recommended. Thank you for the advice.

I am using Flourish and Flourish Excel in conjunction with each other at the moment.
It would be nice to have all the seachem products but that would not be very economical Cheesy
Thats why Flourish is good because it contains all the trace elements iron, calcium etc....
Flourish does not smell good like flourish excel does though lol xD
Also you should try the flourish root tabs as some plants absorb nutrients through their roots and others through their leaves.

Other than Seachem I have also heard good things about API. Although I cannot comment as I have never used any of their products.
