Is there a picture we can look at? For all i know it could be root rot? It likes it wet/moist but i don't think it should be waterlogged

You need to grow your VFT under 50% shade. Temperature during the noon time is too hot for vft.

New leaf?... New leaf is usually white/yellowish under the soil. It turns green after receiving light. I hope you are not referring to that. But yes, a photo will be much helpful.

I think it's better you use the Reverse Osmosis Water. Bath it's first to clean/dilute chlorine from the root. Tap water contain lot of toxic are not healthy even for your body.
My VFT are healthy because I use Reverse Osmosis Water.

i use tap water for my VFTs now and they seem to do fine so far.many growers in Malaysia use tap water for CPs and seem good so far.

but i always top water my plants with distilled or RO water once or twice a month to flush out any minerals if there is some

i think as long as the pipe doesnt suffer any rust,the water is good



Thanks comunnity
Harris
