hi everyone. I have a few crypts that i recently added to my tank. I am getting crypt rot and was wondering if i can cut off the stems down to the rhizome or bulb, whatever a crypt has? Also how would this be done. Thanks
I freaked the first time I tried to grow crypts because a few days after I put them into the tank the began to melt away...it's no biggie. A couple of weeks later they were bigger than when I got them.
in my opinion, most crypts are the easiest plants to maintain. i moved a couple to a holding tank and provide 0 (zero) fertilizers, other than what the fish produce and a 13 watt CFL. and they're growing after the initial melting.
