Does anyone have any experience with this plant? I have read that it is one of the trickier Cryptocoryne species to grow submersed.

Does it grow well emmersed? Any information would be highly appreciated.

Thanks for all of your replies. Tropica, Oriental Aquarium Handbook, most sources in general refer to Cryptocoryne albida as one of the more difficult crypts to grow submersed. As I don't have any experience with any crypt that has ever been referred to as 'difficult' (only grown wendtii var, walkeri, undulata, retrospiralis, spiralis), I didn't know quite what to
expect!

Your responses are all very promising. I will try to grow it emmersed first. And yes, cS, I would love to hear details on your emmersed setup. I have grown the more common crypts in my hydroponic setup, but they have never flowered. Also, I have to be constantly thinning them out during the summer as they propagate vegatively very quickly (especially wendtii 'green').
