Crypt Melt

How long does it take for crypt melt to set in?

I changes the position of my crypts a few weeks ago, and they just started to melt this week. The only other recent change was starting to add Flourish Excel. All other plants seem perfectly healthy and growing better than ever. Crypt melt is the only thing I can think of, unless having more current is affecting them. I would have expected crypt melt in the first week or two, but not three weeks later.

It happens, apparently sometimes they don't melt right away. I moved some luteas around and they seemed to be fine for a few weeks and then slowly disappeared, now they are back. Apparently this is what they do as a delayed reaction to changes, but they should recover and be back to former beauty soon.
