This tank is 24 inches tall.

I wrote about this plant in TFH once about these plants and how (and this is true for nearly all if not all Crypts) you can float a piece of a root cutting in a tank and a new plant will form, and grow, and when it gets to a decent size you remove the root cutting and plant the plantlet and keep floating the root for more.



2003

A piece of rhizome an inch or so long was cut from the plant which was then floated to develop new roots while the rhizome developed a new growth point and produced a new plant.

2004

Two photos taken by Charlie Drew in 2004.

2005

Photos of one plant being divided by root propagation. Just float a piece of the rhizome and a new plant will develop as it did here.

2007

Photos taken at Charlie Drew's home in 2007 by Richard Sexton some of which were used in this TFH article.
