Anacharis is considered to be THE most susceptible plant to Excel. It will literally just melt away....

I don't know how to do the spreadsheet, but I just CANNOT read your post. Please try to do something, even listing Compatible, Incompatible. As it is now I have a headache just looking at it!

I usually just pay a visit to plantgeek.com, their database has sensitive plants identified.

Firsthand, recent experience with the Anacharis. Suffice it to say the ones I have growing now are doing great, lol.
