Flourish is macronutrients. Flourish excel is a carbon dioxide supplement. The two can be used together. Excel is dosed daily and flourish is dosed weekly.

Java fern should be fine without any fertilizer at all. The natural fertilizer (aka fish poop) should be enough. You definitely do not need excel. It is a slow growing plant and as long as it stays green, you're good.

The plant looks like wisteria grown emersed. The flourish comprehensive should be enough. The wisteria will grow quick and the anubias and java fern slow. I have no experience with wisteria hub just leave the fern and nana alone and they'll grow, moving them too much will impede there growth. Tie them to a rock or wood and move the rock or wood around.

So I've had this java fern for a while, just chilling hooked up to my driftwood. But as of lately, it's been starting to get a brown powder (that's the best word I can use to describe it) on it. The weird thing is, it's only on the front of the leaves, never the backsides and it's been spawning new leaflets like crazy. I've been attempting to cycle while it's in there and I just have no idea what's going on with it. Whether or not I should do something for it. My other fern is having the same problem, but only in small amounts and is hardly noticeable. Anybody have any ideas?



Edit: Nevermind, turns out the brown powder wiped right off and was just loose matter from the driftwood. No worries.
