Eichhornia diversifolia - growing tips?

I received some E. diversifolia in a generous plant 
trade a few weeks ago, and am trying to get it 
established.  I read in the archives that it didn't 
get along well with H. zosterifolia, so I removed the 
large stand I had in the tank.  I initially got some 
good growth (enough to trade a few cuttings) but I 
now seem to have quite a bit of black leaves.  

It seems like the plant sucks up P very well and 
responds with new shoots and increased growth.  I 
have also been upping my micros a little.  My problem 
is that it seems like everything will be fine, and 
then the leaves will blacken.  If anyone has some 
tips to share, I would appreciate it.
