How am I killing my java fern?
I always felt they were easier than plastic plants, but recently, mine has started to fall apart. It had been growing fine for a long time. I recently switched to 100% RO
water with RO
Right and with baking soda for buffering. I also increased from .75 wpg
to 1.4 wpg
and started dosing with Flourish, but it started to fall apart before that. It develops holes through the leaves near the bottom and the holes expand until there is very little leaf left. On the larger leaves there are what look like clumps of spores on the underside in a regular pattern. Even my little baby that broke away a few months ago is dying. My anubias, wisteria, and hornwort are doing fine. What have I done to kill my Java Fern?
Almost forgot parameters:
Old (50% RO
/50% tap water of death) pH 7.6, ammonia-0, nitrite-0, nitrate-40
New: pH 7.2, ammonia-0, nitrite-0, nitrate-30
