Awesome Orlando! That looks like the Cryptocoryne cf. ideii you got from me a while back. Here's a picture of mine flowering for a reference.

In a mixture of stuff I made with RO water. It sits in an empty 40G breeder with lots of light for a few days, then just ambient room light for another few days.

This particular Crypt prefers acidic water that is very soft. Using pure rainwater, RO water or DI water is best. I'm growing mine in a mixture of Aquasoil Amazonia and American Beech Tree litter.
