Unhappy live plant halp!!

okay I've had this live plant in Lync's bowl for about 2 months now but it started peeling. It is still green,but the green stuff started to peel off on the tips of the leaves so there is just the water vessels I know some of you know a thing or two about stuff like that. I have it in rocks because I don't know the first thing about putting sand in a one gallon bowl please help. oh and one more thing it gets plenty of sunlight durring the day. it's growth process is fine, and it only takes up about a fourth of the bowl.




thanks K stiles

Okay just by that description it sounds like the plant is a java fern. Google and see if I am right. If you are putting the rocks on top of it, take them off. For whatever reason, java ferns take poorly to having their roots covered. The roots will even mould over this way. See if this helps.

If you have any questions about plants, I would ask Byron. He knows everything about plants.
