I put in 3 mini Indian almond leaves about a week ago and I’m confused if they’re doing what they’re supposed to do. My ph hasn’t lowered at all and my water isn’t tinted at all. Do you think they’re still working? Also the leaves are turning a lighter brown in tiny patches. I wanted to try an experiment so I put two mini leaves in a 1/2 liter measuring cup 3 days ago and the water isn’t tinted either lol. Do I need to wait longer to see results? Thanks!!

Usually the smaller ones don't leech or release tannins as well as the larger leaves IME. You could always try boiling them.

Depending on the hardness of your water there is nothing going to happen about the pH and they look a lot like they were not fully dried before you got them. And even in soft water one has to add a lot more for a significant change in pH and tint.
