Experiences with crypt lingua?


I was considering planning for this plant in a new setup, and it would grow mostly emersed.

I was just curious if anybody had positive/negative encounters with keeping this plant.

Emerged is the way to go. Never kept mine going past 2 months.

Found its located in swamps. Water goes up, water goes back down.

Not fully submerged,

Never grown it submerged, out of water it is a nice little plant though.

Grew one submerged for over a year. Never more than a few leaves at a time and did not propagate.

i have never been able to keep C. lingua alive submerged
they do fine emersed though

i kept them in a closed tank outdoor but the tank cover doesn't completely shut so when it rains plants inside are drowned until i remember to drain them. it kinda simulate river banks where water goes up and down like Gordon said

Yeah, I gathered that they were not the toughest immersed plants. I was thinking of planting one in a crack between two rocks where only about 1/4-1/2" of the plant was submerged.

Anyone else have any experience with this plant?

Grew them and flowered them etc.
More an emergent plant I'd say over the long term.

Pretty plant though.
