[APD] Re: A real newbie question

Hi there,

I would try putting a Flourish tab under the plant. The pin holes could
indicate low potassium and the whitish leaves insufficient iron.

Hope that helps

I have several 10G tanks, all planted.  One of them has aponogeton,
echinodorus barthii, java moss, valisneria spiralis, saggiteria subulata and
good-sized bunch of giant hygro.  Everything but the giant hygro is at least
well, if not thriving, with the exception of the giant hygro.  I've had it
maybe six months and it's never grown.  It's just been standing there
at me".  In recent weeks, it's become paler and paler and is now developing
some pinholes in the leaves.

Nitrate (the day before water change) 80
Nitrite 0
Ammonia 0
GH 75
KH 120
pH 7.2

Is the giant hygro salvageable?  If so, what can I do?

Growing old is inevitable; growing UP is optional.
