Plants melting, books and ?
I noticed today that my Bacopa caroliniana was melting a few of its lower
leaves. This doesn't overly bother me (should it?), given that 3 days back
I stuck a lump of wood in the tank (hence the pH is dropping slowly but
surely) and yesterday 12 tetras. I imagine the water chem changes this has
caused led to the melt. My question though is this: Do all aquatic plants
melt? I know crypts do, but the rest?
Second question: Could anyone recommend a good botany book, with an ample
section on aquatic plants of course :) (I've seen the various
recommendations for aquatic specific books - I'm looking for something not
so specific, suitable for a scientifically literate person.)
Thirdly, and coupling my knowledge of fluid dynamics to an unhealthy, yet
republican (small r) interest in prince Charles: Given that sound travels
better underwater, does anyone here talk to their plants? Any effect?
Enquiring minds want to know!
