I forgot to put the lid back on one time!

This pot was taken out of water to be grown emersed.



It looks like this after all the leaves were dried out. Luckily the rhizome was still viable. There are a few new side shoots.

How long did you leave the lid off for and do you know what the humidity dropped down to?

I left the lid off over night and didnt notice until the next afternoon. It was at least 12-15 hours.

I didnt check the humidity levels. It was probably 35-40%? The crypts and anubias weren't really affected by this though.

I'm wondering how much going from submersed to emerged had to do with it, I noticed that I lost a couple leaves on the sokan I got that was submersed but the other two had no issues. The leaves on the sokan were also a little pale compared to the others..

Great observation - the cuticles on the submerged leaves should be much thinner than the emerged leaves. I didn't think of that at all.

Did the sokan send out new roots yet?

Actually it did white kinda fuzzy roots coming from up on the stem, I was suprised to see them as quick as I did, there were some when I got it but more after a week.

Here is an observation of submerged growth VS emerged growth of bucephalandra sp.

The two plant below is the Green Velvet. Notice a growth pattern on these two plants? Since the submerged plant can get nutrients through the water column, it is not too concerned with root development and more focused on sending side shoots.

Now look at the immersed plant, it has a massive root system but no side shoots.

Immersed on the left and submerged on the right:

Hmm, that is a pretty drastic difference. I would have thought the opposite would happen.

Well I spent some time tonight researching rheophytic plants (plants that live between the low level and high level mark of fast moving streams, they are specialized to withstand the high current examples of other rheophytes that ppl would know are anubias and java fern) bucephalandras are all rheotypes and one thing I have read in a couple places is that during the rainy season when they are being submersed the most they enter a growth stage where they ae sending out shoots and during the dry season when they only get submersed sporatically they stop growing and focus on flowering. This may answer why you are seeing the shoots growing more while submersed. I'm not sure why root growth is more when emersed though.
