Yes, that's U. gibba.

It's a PITA but manual removal is the only way to go. Luckily for me it's slower growing without CO2 so manual removal isn't much work.

Nah. It's rather slow growing for me, especially in low tech. It takes months for it to send out a new leaf.



Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia or Cryptocoryne moehlmannii.

I don't see a reason for microwaving it. All you're doing is making a mess in the kitchen. Any terrestrial bacteria or pests will most likely die once your substrate is submerged. Just open the bag,...
