Yes I did and came to no definite conclusions except that it was an
imbalance of some sort -nitrogen or phosphorus.It could be almost
anything. I changed the water and added some hydroponic fertilizer.
In one case I went back to a garden fertilizer which seemed to bring
better results. I sometimes wonder how well mixed are the dry components
of the fertilizer.

By the way, I think that closing the List is a bad idea.  Not all
newcomers to the List are inexperienced. Maybe the trick is to keep
questions and answers succinct.
