I lose so many plant and money loss due to this lack of a green thumb. After having fish for 6 months ive lost $300 in plant life....everything from anubias, java ferns, crypts, mint charlie, wysteria, sword....you name it ive killed it.
After my last plant death I decided to try pennywort and mint charlie. Ive heard lots of good things about pennywort growing well and hardy. Ive had them one week and I have leaves falling off left and right and stems turning to mush.
I have eco complete substrate, root tabs in the substrate, and I dose 3x weekly with flourish excell and I have two 6500K bulbs (12 hour timer) in a 10 gallon with a single betta and no snails or tank mates.
I do a 10-20% water change 1x a week.
My Ph is 8.0 (but I read they usually do fine with a higher PH)
Am I underdosing, over dosing? Other thoughts on whats killing them?
I would love to save them!
