Thanks! I hope so too... It should be here early in the week. If not, there is something wrong and custom has either return to sender or destroy the plants.

Here is the plants before they were shipped. Full of color and look extremely healthy:



Here is after 1.5 weeks in transit. Very pale and lack of color for being in the dark.:






Planted submerged with full co2, high light, EI dosing, about PAR 100



Planted emersed in used aquasoil (left) and new aquasoil (right). I will be targeting 90% to 95% humidity and PAR 85:


Planted emersed in aquasoil with 80% humidity, in three different setups, and PAR 60:

Honestly, it doesn't cost that much compared to what I've in for this tank. From price per unit, it is actually cheaper than most of my crypts in the tank.

No, it was coming from Europe. It got stuck in custom a few days longer than it should've. But I got it though. I have been chasing down this crypt for over 1.5+ years. So I'm happy as it is not a complete mush!

LOL... I haven't found a happy point for this tank yet. I have always like to try different things. It keeps me going in this hobby.

Where did you end up finding it? Care to share any crypt sources?

If you do your searches you'll find them pretty easy. Just the question is are you willing to spend the big $$$ to buy them. Most people can't justify spending $100+ on a single plant that you don't know if you can keep alive.

Indeed, but it is lovely. Does it grow to the size of a wendtti?
