Plants in pots will receive less nutrients because of the pot. In the substrate, they can expand their roots and as waste collects and is broken down the plant roots assimilate the nutrients. In the pot this is confined to the pot, so adding a tab would be best. I understand the need for the pot, not suggesting you un-pot the crypt; just making the comment why.
