I forgot to tell that i'm actually adding one tbsp of KNO3 weekly...thats
why of the high NO3 measurements.. i'll switch to the KSO4 it sounds like
a reasonable tought.

I use Dupla test for all my measurements.

I do a 40% water change weekly (70% tap water,30% ro water to lower a bit
I don't think it could be an iron deficency though, i got laterite in the
substrate and the amount of TMG should be enough for that trace elements.
Anyway, i don't do iron tests (since i don't get sintomps of iron deficency
from the other plants and even if i would i don't think that those suggested
fe values mean that much) so it could be.... but i prefer not to add more

> It is a beautiful plant

Indeed!! Didn't think it could be so challanging though!
