I am fairly new to live plants in my aquarium. I purchased these two at my local pet store, they said these are some of the easiest plants to care for. I have not used any plant fertilizer . I have had the plants for about 8 days now. I have noticed the one on the left has began to turn brown on some of the leafs also the one on the right has lost a couple leafs. My lighting consists of two compact fluorescent 10 W bulbs. I have a few questions what kind of plants are these? Is my lighting sufficient for these plants? Why are the leafs dieing/ falling off? And do these plants require fertilizer?
The link below should take you to a picture of my plants. Thanks for the help!
sorry but your link didn't work...did the shop owner give you the species name for the plants you bought...if they are going to sell it , then they had better be able to tell you exactly what it is.....
some of my favorite plants are cryptocoryne , anubias , java fern and java moss , and aponogetons...they do not require fertilizers or special lighting or co2 injection...a decently stocked aquarium will provide just about all of their nutritional needs..
