I couldn't believe that the difference was flourite, but my amazon swords
grew to more than 100 leaves and were more than 18 inches in diameter with a
two inch diameter root ball. I had three plants. I needed to rearrange the
tank and so I had to pull them out of the gravel. When I planted them in
different spots, they suddenly sprouted baby plants. It was unbelievable.
The runners just kept growing and growing until I had at least 18 new plants
growing on a runner from each of the three originals. I cut off the runners
and sold the initial plants (I had to make room). Then I planted each of the
other 50+ plants (they are now getting quite large). But the best part is I
only used two bags of flourite (that is all I could find when I set up the
tank) for a 120 gallon tank. Can it still be the flourite? I do use VHO
lites, but no CO2 as the pH is nearly 4.3. How long does the flourite effect
last? I would hate to rip the tank apart and redo it. Thanks.
