Dear Les,

Looks to ME like they are being grown under too 'stressful', unnatural
conditions with not enough nutrients in the water! They do NOT grow in
fountains with rushing, clear water! Try a still, warm, pond-like setting
with LOTS of nitrogen in the water (from the fish wastes) in full sun or
brighter light!
Some folks may not realise that living plants will not tollerate any
chemicals added to the fountain water to 'keep it clear'! He/she may have
added chlorine tablets, which will burn the delicate roots and cause the new
leaves to go 'white', then kill it.
