Macrandra Dilemmas...


It seems as though there are many people who wish to grow this plant. A few
have asked recently with little reply (and yes, the PsW thing is
important...but let's remember to answer the plant questions too).

Mountains of CO2, Light and Macro/micro nutrients are not cutting it for
most of us. And yet many are successful.

Since I too am having difficulty in growing this plant, and the only success
I see in the archives/Krib seem to be Karen who uses pots to get it to grow,
and a few people who get lucky waving the chicken over the pot, I would like
to gather data from all attempts and correlate it into a Table (and give to
the Krib, or someone) to show what has worked and what hasn't. So, if you
are good at growing Macrandra, or if you kill it every time (for me the stem
rots from the base, up) please take a moment to send to me (or the list)
answers to the following questions:

How long have you  grown Macrandra successfully?
Before you were successful, were you unsuccessful (and what changed that)?

What are your tank conditions:
Lighting -
Temp -
pH -
KH -
Ca (ppm)-
Mg (ppm)-
Cl (ppm)-
Fe (ppm)-
additives/frequency (PMDD, KNO3, CaCl, CaSO4, etc...)?

Anything else you can think of...

I'll correlate and table and look for a web-page volunteer.
