Seattle_Aquarist Hi philipraposo1982,

C. wendtii 'Flamingo' shouldn't be that difficult to grow emersed, although some crypts seem to take some time to become established. What are you using for substrate, light, and ferts?

C. wendtii 'Florida Sunset' (seven (7) months after planting as a runner plantlet)

philipraposo1982 Wow congrats!

I got some flamingo that seems to never grow, tiny plants from tissue culture but at least they are surviving emersed.

I don't know what I can do to help speed up growth.

MissileBear Finally got the Kota Tinggi to bloom. Took ~5 years!

Hi Patriot,

I like Marsilea minuta (Mm), it has a nice light green color that helps the Crypts stand out. It can tolerate medium/low light although it does better with higher light levels. I find Mm does not grow well under the crypts which is good because it doesn't 'choke' them.

Marsilea minuta just starting; by Blyxa and Crypts


Marsilea minuta on right

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.
