So, you can't treat C. Bullosa like C. Brekettii huh?
I'll offer you a challenge then. Send me one healthy, young rooted C. Bullosa. I'll put it in my emesered tank EXACLTLY like I treat my other Cypts & my Downoi. Give me 90 days if it's NOT a full healthly adult plant I'll donate $50 the charity of your choice.
If it is a healthly adult plant, you will post 1000Xs I will not be rude & snippy to new forum members.
Thanks for the warm welcome!
Welcome to the forum!
I really don't think Kai meant any anomosity in his reply. I believe he is concerned about the possibility of passing on 'misinformation' on this forum. He has much more experience with C.bullosa than many others here on the forum. Although his methods may not be the only way to grow C.bullosa, it's a good starting point for others that may have never grown this crypt before since his methods have shown to be successful. Im sure he is even more concerned because like he already mentioned, most specimens of C.bullosa are collected from the wild and replacing a dead plant might prove difficult, especially since much of the crypt habitat is being destroyed.
That being said, please refrain from turning this thread into a grudge match. I really would like this thread to stay on topic and be helpful for anybody growing this beautiful crypt.
