    Hi @-serok-
    Might be an issue with in vitro plants but in my case this is happening to clusters planted in front so my guess is its because of more than required water or too damp conditions causing this..

    UG at the back which is elevated, has no issues at al and i can see some emersed growth..
    Micramatheum, hemianthus, eleocharis, glosso, elatine etc have done well submerged as well for me.. UG i had never tried..

    @Culprit3 thats exactly what i have started doing, longer air time, and removing affected area as soon as i spot them..

    Surprisingly, H2O2 doesnt help..!

    Things havent improved @keithgh
    Saw a couple of more clusters of UG getting affected by mould, removed those and aired the tank thrice today.
    To ensure mold doesnt spread, i have added some cinnamon powder on affected area.. touchwood..

    If things dont improve i will revert to HC ang belem hairgrass..

    That is a new method I have never heard of. Is it a tried and proven method?

    I keep orchids and use cinnamon for its anti fungal properties.. works like a charm..

    I grew many Orchids and was the President Show Manager for many years I also ran beginners classes. I have never heard of that.
