I think there may be some confusion about the plant in question and what I am wondering about it.
Has anyone ever seen silver spangling on a Cryptocoryne, similar to what is seen on submersed Bucephalandra? If so, do you know what caused it? As the plant is so young, I can't test any theories at this point to see if its an artifact of its environment(lighting, substrate, fertilizers) or genetic. If it is environmental, I figure with the long lasting popularity of Crptocorynes, somebody will have seen it before. I'd like to keep it looking like this, so if something causes it, I want to keep doing it.
On another note, it seems to be doing extremely well! Over night, its leaf bud opened and a new leaf bud popped up. At this rate, I may be testing some theories sooner that I thought.
