Dennis, as usual, you do so well with all your species. Nice photo.
Yes, there are others out there growing this plant. They can step forward, if they wish. I know lookingforroselines is growing them for sure.
The experience here has been that they prefer a pH above 7. That means they grow larger and faster. The interesting thing is that the one kept in an acidic medium remained much smaller but produced offsets more rapidly. Go figure??
Have been very busy here moving to a new home. So much to do. Eight large tanks of Crypts will require a few changes in the area where they will be placed. Just now getting new plumbing in for a double utility tub and separate water spigots for the DI water production and general purposes of cleaning tanks, pots, plants, etc.
Then all the new electrical outlets for heaters and lights. New racks are being installed so all tanks will be on the same level.
Should be very functional when finished. Lots of work.
I have lots of new photos to share but no time to get them into APC.
Thanks for your post. Bill
