my glosso was just sitting there as well until i did a nitrate test and
found it was unmeasurable. i also did some reading and discovered that my
other plants appeared to be exhibiting potassium deficiency. now that i'm
adding much more potassium and have my nitrates at 10-15ppm my glosso is
finally taking off.
i already had 3wpg and 20ppm co2, flourite substrate and flourish but until
N and K were increased nothing was happening.
if you do add nitrates do it very slowly or your fish won't be happy. i
worked up by doses calculated to increase about 1.5ppm to where i am now.

I have a 54 gallon corner tank that's been established over a year
(see pics he http://www.aquabotanic.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=681
). I've recently redesigned it, and have planted gloso in the
foreground. It grows, but extremely slowly. Anybody have any clues as
to what could be the problem?
Hardness: Very soft (New York City tap)
Lighting: 220w CF
Fertilization: PMDD 15 drops every day
All plants grow well except for Rotala Walachii, which also grows very
slowly. Any input would be appreciated. I'd really like a glosso lawn,
but at this rate it'll take forever.
