Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V3 #999

A friend of mine told me that aquarium plants prefer amonnia in alkaline
water and nitrite/nitrates in acid water. He found that in one russian
aquarium book.

Any comments?

The only I can think of is that as the pH level rises ammonium ions (NH4)
break down to ammonia (NH3 + H20) and plants prefer NH3 (but why?).
