    They can't haev very strong light direct at them, water condition should be stable. once crytos got use to your water condition , they are very hardy.

    Cheeseng,if you wan some wentii i can pass u a few stalks , they are already in the "wet" form [] .
    Cheers!

    are they new from the farm? could be transiting from emersed to submersed form.
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Crpts are rather fussy abt water condition stability. They are known to be hardy plants but if the conditions change e.g. lighting or temperature they will melt. But they will come back to grow new leaves eventually.

    what exactly causes crypts to melt is kinda hard to pin down
    my own experience with crypts melting is the water
    seasoned, aged water is best for crypts
