Mostly curiousity, since I've never tried it before. I'd also like the lilaeopsis to get nice and thick and rooted before filling. I am going low tech and expect slower growth once immersed. This is an office tank, so I'd like the carpet to fill in. Regarding the crypts, I didn't put too many in there. I just wanted to see how they did with the dry start.
We'll see how it goes.
