I will be setting up a new tank using AS/Co2 and will focus primarily on asian plants. Cryptocorynes in particular. How do you guys minimize the damage that invariably accompanies planting crypts? Methods & Techniques? Thanks, Will

When crypts get moved and replanted the root system is always damaged, and there is usually loss of some, if not all, of the older leaves. There is almost always plenty of food reserves in the rhizome (stem) so that the plant grows new leaves. Also see sticky #2 about how to revive shipped crypts.
