I cannot believe I've just read this. My girlfriend and her mum used it all the time and I'd never heard it before, she'll be delighted to know it's been used on an aquascaping forum. I just hope she doesn't start using it to describe my scapespeely wally
When I planted my crypt pygmea in vitro all the leaves melted, I was advised by @dw1305 that it was best not to cut the leaves off before planting as there is no root system on in vitro plants. They all melted and grew back nice and healthy so it sounds like yours will be fine. Mine went really mushy and completely disintegrated.Trying to give this scape some attention after letting it slide for a while.
Planted some crypt crispulata, yikes first time in ages I've had full melt, just the whole thing soggy and rotten within 5 days. Depressing.
They were in vitro and looked a bit off, lots of leaf, but no root. If that normal for in vitro crypts? Not used them before.
Yes, I think that is right. I haven't actually bought any in vitro plants, but I would definitely plant in vitro Cryptocoryne spp. with as much leaf as possible, because they don't have <"much in the way of rhizome"> to fall back on.I was advised by @dw1305 that it was best not to cut the leaves off before planting as there is no root system on in vitro plants.
