Maybe there should be a thread about how roots like moist soil AND air... seed too... more is better? more is better! more is better...
I agree 100%...its purdy cut and dry...no pun intended. They say a picture says a thousand words and some of the words I see are...my foliage is flooded...help me I'm too wet...I don't have fungus yet but I know spores are forming...don't hit me with N! and so on...

A non aquatic plant living in aquatic conditions will surely not survive. Only water when showing signs of drought even from day one. Go spend two weeks in the pool, non stop and see how the tissue on your skin reacts even though you like and need water. Most living things only drink as needed. If someone was trying to make me drink glass, after glass, after glass, after glass eventually ill give you a sign that says.
Enough efen glasses. You better head the sign or I'm out.

That's not fungus you see in the foliage but its surly in the making...in the soil.
