In my opinion, they are just as easy as most of the ones that are already saturated in the hobby.
Thanks... I agree with you. Caring for rare crypts are the same as the less rare crypts. I enjoyed the rare crypts more because the colors and characteristics are different and awesome. I also think people can't justify spending big $$$ for a plant.
I read in Jan's crypt pages that c ferruginea cannot be grown in the long run. I got a few specimen grown submerged and I witnessed colors and patterns that I will never see in a emerged specimen. I have Frank testing a specimen for me submerged as well in a typical mts setting. So far so good.
That is interesting... I would love to hear and see the result. If you need help on experimenting of growing any crypts submerged. I will gladly help you out.
