Growing Crypt. parva emersed

Post by aquaticclarity »

Has anyone tried growing Crypt. parva immersed? I'm starting up a Crypt tank but was thinking of getting the parva established with just wet feet in hopes of knocking down the algae on it. Has anyone tried this?

Yes.. It's not hard. Just keep an eye on your the humidity levels.

I grow mine in an Ikea Samla plastic shoebox. About 3-4 cm compost, plant, fill with water until the crown is just underwater. Easy peasy.

Cheers.
Jim
