What is your NO3 and fish load? Also, what is your PO4 level and trace
This question applies to all those who have it. I think it might do better
in higher NO3 waters with less PO4. Some folks, even brand new beginners
that I help and set up tanks for have the greatest of ease growing it but
others, myself include have trouble. It plays tricks on folks over the long
term. Just when you feel all comfortable, it stunts. Nice plant though.
