    Information about Cryptocoryne hudoroi seems to be very limited, and I can't seem to find a whole lot on growing it submerged. I really love the bullate leaves of this plant, and the other similar, highly bullate species C. bullata and C. keei are not readily available, unfortunately. It appears...

    I realize that various sp. of Crypts tolerate/thrive in a variety of hardness ranges, but is there a recommended range or can someone point me to a resource that lists a variety of Crypts and their recommended hardness ranges? Preferably whatever degree GH as the same unit the API test kit is...
