No worries, we've all been there. I started in 2005 as a broke college student asking people for free plants on here and APC. Luckily, there were tons of nice people giving out their plants to newbies like myself...a small priority box was only $3.85 back then! Usually when I RAOK off a plant I tend to give it to college students as I indirectly feed them in a strange way. As a student I remember occasionally having to decide between lunch or plants and there were multiple instances when I would choose the latter.

Is this normal with C. Nuriis where the roots tend to grow out of the substrate? I've had this happen in multiple setups with varying substrates (akadama, aquasoil and eco-complete). It's never the full root system growing out of the substrate but just a few stragglers here and there. This isn't some type of deficiency, is it?

It's not all that uncommon for me either.

I like creepy things, vines included.

Took two random pics today as I was enjoying my morning coffee. First pic is just a regular Crypt Nurii and second is an Ideii and Nurii side by side.
