Re: hard water plants
Rotala wallichii has done better for me in softer
water than in harder water. 6 dGH seems to be
I still haven't figured out the stunting problem after
trimming though. Very finicky.
I think that there may be a difference between success
with a plant in soft or hard water in the short term
and long term. I've had plants that supposedly prefer
soft water do well in harder water fade after a while
with no other discernable cause. The Baensch atlas
mentions that wallichii will grow in harder water for
a while before starting to have trouble. Something I
don't understand is why those books mention plants
having more trouble in water with a higher carbonate
hardness. GH is not mentioned.
