|Monster Fish||GH should be at least 7-8, KH should be at least 7. While C. walkeri tolerates softer water, C. usteriana is a hard water plant.|

|Patriot||Is water hardness of 8 good enough to grow cryptocoryne usteriana x walkeri? I can't find a reading of the ideal water hardness for this species.|

|philipraposo1982||Not sure if this actually helps or not but I do it with my crypts. I have a container floating in the tank where I am pulling crypts from, as I am pulling up plants I move them in there. The container is filled with the same tank water. The end goal is to never expire the plant to the open air. I find there is far less shock with this method.|

|end3r.P||Anyone have tips on growing C. parva in a low-light, low-tech setup? I know it will grow very slowly -- just want to keep it alive and healthy. Soft or hard water? Temp? Ferts?|

|Dave in the basement||Anyone have any advice on splitting and moving crypts, please? They are taking over my 55 and I need to spread the love to my 15 and 29 tanks. Thanks in advance!|

So i got this plant in a little bag sealed from a local pet store. no idea what it is and i posted another thread asking about the small white specs. I'm pretty sure it is a Crypt, but no idea which one. also it doesn't seem to be thriving like everything else in the tank. Any ideal water parameters for this guy?
Also this whole plant is about the size of a half dollar.

Hey guys, I'm having trouble keeping some of my submerged crypts. (Planted + 24/7, sand capped topsoil, CO2, EI dosing and occasional root tabs)
Crypt norotoi is a lush green when I can get it to grow and I've gotten 7 or 8 plants from the original but it's not uncommon for all of them to lose their leaves at once and they're not looking so hot right now. Crypt costata albida is another one that looks super gorgeous and it's a unique crypt but the three plants I've started with have never propagated and have never had >3 leaves/plant. Crypt dewitii I've never really been able to grow - the rhizomes I've got now are growing a bit but I'm afraid patience isn't going to be enough to see them really thrive.
Anyone else have experience trying to grow these crypts submerged? I don't think I have the will/resources to set up an emersed setup, unfortunately.

I recently received a small C. usteriana. I'll see how it grows in my dirted tank with crushed coral in the substrate.
