Thanks! That is what I was looking for. Except it is taking over my tank. I planning to do a big trim of them this weekend.

C. Bullosa has grew another new leaf! It seem to grow at a normal crypt rate... not a C. Bullosa rate of 1 leaf per month. If you look carefully on the left side of the plant, you'll see a small leaf. That is a baby C. Bullosa!



1-16-2012: Two crowns survived the modified emersed setup. I will now plant these in my submersed setup. It will be my last emersed picture of them. As of today, the two crowns are still alive and doing well submersed.

Congrats dude. It grows super slow for everyone else but it seems to like its home. Did you insert steroid pills in the substrate? Whatever you are giving it, save me some. Lol

LOL... It is Cleveland water! You'll need to bring a bucket to collect and bring it back to Cali.

Honestly, I am not doing anything different from any of you guys. I think you guys are doing more than me. I am a minimalist! And just been darn lucky!

Not to mention that the leaf size of each new leaf is bigger than the previous. You're definitely doing something right.

Did you mention that you have an automatic water changing system? Maybe this helps to stablize and maintain your water parameters by getting rid of any mineral buildups.

Yes, I do have an automatic water changing system at 8% per day. I am thinking that is really the only differences between everyone setups.

A quick update: I did a little rearranging with the tank. Overall everything is still growing very well. Still have a little of hair algae problem. I might need to spot treat the stubborn thing.

-Moved the Ludwigia 'Red' to back of the tank
-Moved small form Bolbitis in front of the Ludwigia 'Red'
-Moved Microsorum pteropus sp. 'red' to front right

C. Hudoroi - This is really taking off, I got 3 plantlets already.


C. KR01 - I finally got two runners from these two guys.


C. 'Rosanervig' - I got a few runners from a couple of plants. I am losing some of the veins look on the new leaves. What I noticed is that lower light promotes a stronger and vibrant veins.


C. Bullosa - The new plantlet has grown a 2nd leaf. The mother plant has another new leaf. Every new leaves have a pinkish look on the under side. The bullation is really noticeable compares to any of the crypts.


C. Mimina 'Gasser' - Still growing very well. It is a smaller type of crypt. Almost the same size as a nurii but the leaves are shorter and more oval. Coloration is very much different from other crypts as it is bright pink on the under side of the leaves.


C. Jacobsenii - It seem to be adjusting to submerse condition very well. The plant already has grown a new leaf. No sign of melting (knock on wood).


C. Uenoi - I have 4 plantlets from the mother plant. So it is doing very well.


C. Kota Tingii - Finally I got a runner from the plant. I thought it will be a shorter crypt but it is around 5-6 inches tall. Still a cool crypt.


C. Keei - I got like 10 runners from this plant already. It is crazy how fast this plant send runners.


C. 'Flamingo' - It is still alive and growing new leaves except I don't see any new roots. From what I can see, the new leaves are all pink. Hopefully, it will rebound and grown!!!


Downoi - It is taking off... At this rate, I will have a downoi farm!


I have decided to sell Stauroyne sp. Purple and Erio Parkeri, and buc... They are nice plants but just doesn't work for me.

Also, I think I have the upper hand on the dreaded hair algae by spot treating with excel. It is such a stubborn algae!

Seems like you got a pretty good handle on these crypts. Too bad you didn't keep some of those c apongetifolia. I would have totally swapped you for some

Nice growth you have there, what type of fern do you have growing on the intakes I like its small size, I'm really looking for a replacement for my Standard Java fern that is really just too big.
