The new runners tend to go a little more unnoticed and stay very close and tight to the mother plant. I have had the crypts or a little under a year and have had a very generous crop of them already.


Thatís not bad, just under 4 inches.

Lovely plants! I've had Flamingo-envy for awhile now. How much light do they need to develop some color? I realize w/o CO2 & high lights they're not gonna be a bright flamingo pink like you see in a lot of the pics on here, but would love a slow & low growing plant that has some color for the front of my tank.

I was able to get my hands on a healthy, somewhat grown out flamingo. Itís been in the tank for just over a week, and itís already throwing a new leaf. Iím hoping to accomplish what OP has done with theirs. Definitely a beautiful plant!

The look great! What parameters do you have them in? CO2? PH/KH? Light levels, etc?

Well, it's early to tell exactly how it'll do, but so far so good!

CO2 @ 1.1-1.2 pH drop (7.4 down to 6.3-6.2, so safely in the 30-35+ ppm range), 4 dKH, 8 dGH, up until now about 70 PAR, but soon to be 90-100 (probably going to get a second Fluval 3.0 for the tank, I measured my current unit at 114 PAR @ 14.5" - 100% intensity, so 90-100 is conservative, but only slightly). 8 hours full blast with a 1 hour ramp up and a 1 hour ramp down, 78 degrees.

Anyone done algae spot treatment on flamingo leaves?

Excel / Met14 / H2O2?

Thinking about giving it a go on some BBA, I've got a healthy dozen or so of these now and don't want to melt them back.

Weekly Doses - NO3 - 5ppm / K - 6ppm / PO4 - 0.5ppm / PPS-Pro Micro's - 0.35ppm Fe / 75 PAR, 7 hours, 25% weekly water change
