I know what propagation is, the way your sentence ran, it sounded like the leaves you trimmed were being treated, like you would with Rootone, to regrow as separate, new plants....

GrampsGrunge I wasn't sure if he was talking about the Osmocote, or the leaves.

No, he's saying if you clip leaves. Use Osmocote tabs and cut the tabs is half and place them in the substrate around the crypt to help it bounce back quickly.

Aquatic Mag offers it on their website for $50 a plant; seems pricy to me.

Monster Fish I clip the oldest leaves. Usually they're the ones furthest away from the growth point.

Patriot When you guys and girls plant your crypts in submerged do you clip all the leaves? I noticed that the smaller younger leaves don't melt like the older larger leaves.

Just got all of this from the forum. Will fill in my tank nicely. Sometimes I wish they didn't melt as I love how tall they are.

Ligyron You guyz have some amazing Crypts, (drool)!

I lost my entire collection in multiple hurricanes a decade or so ago. Took a long time to build that collection too, darnit. Had a lot of them outside in ponds and bogs where they did well.

I've no clue where to get nuri, dewitii, striolata, etc. anymore, only the ubiquitous commercial species one sees advertised.
