My Eusteralis Stellata
I got some ES from Jon Wilson a few months ago. I had good luck with the stuff in a 55 gallon tank with ~3 w/g. I did notice that when I would trim the plant back the replanted tops would stop growing and new sprouts would take off. This made for a very bushy plant. I added KNO3 and K2SO4 at about 1/4 tsp per weekly water change. I also added MgSO4, Flourish and Seachem KH buffer. GH and KH are each between 4 and 6. The pH is between 6.0 and 6.8 with pressurized CO2. Flourite substrate.
I have a few ideas that I need to try to get the plant going well again, as it has stalled over the past weeks. These include: Phosphate additions, TMG, softer water, etc.
I did notice that the plant was a good indicator of Fe in the water. When you have a decent amount, the new growth is red. When there isn't enough Fe, the new growth is green.
