I have had good luck with albida once. See the lingua picture and see what I said about how I fertilized that tank. The albida in that tank was grown in a very rich peat-soil mix. I have two small plants just getting started now. Time will tell how they do.

For some reason, I suspect that albida and many other crypts do best if the N and P are metered out fairly frugally. Keep 'em a bit hungry. Give 'em lots of CO2 and room and good light, but make 'em work a bit for N and P. It seems to work better than keeping N and P levels high all the time. I don't know why. I am not sure it has to be both N and P that are kept low. Maybe it is just N. I doubt that it is just P.
