See the attached picture - what is causing the browning of this plant.
Is it a nutrient deficiency - I add Flora 24 every day...

Or is it the 15 degree Kh?

Also - what is this plant?

Here's a link to common signs of plant nutrient deficiencies.

Here's some info on signs of light deficiencies I pulled off of aquarticles.com

Symptoms of insufficient light:
- plants weak and frail
- leaves pale green to yellowish
- stems thin
- rosette plants have small leaves on weak stalks
- stem plants have few leaves and widely spaced, long internodes
- close to the light source growth is vigorous and compact, lower stems barren, (this can also happen in brightly lit tanks when plants are crowded together so enough light does not reach the lower stems)
