*giggle* That MUST be my problem!!! I have been looking at it funny an AWFUL lot lately . . .
I've read this about crypts, and didn't actually expect mine to do well at first. . . oddly enough this was the ONLY plant that had absolutley NO die-off when added to the tank, it just took off and has been growing very steadily since I got it - about 3 months or so ago. It MUST be the lighting. The only change has been that my floating plants died off.
Though I've read that these plants *CAN* do well with higher lighting, mine has always been in the shade, and that shade is now gone. . . so that is most likely the problem. Hopefully this next batch of floaters take, and all will once again be well in there.
I'm pretty sure that this crypt is my favorite plant. . . I hope it can hang in there! And thanks. . . even if all of the current leaves die, it's nice to know that there is yet hope!!! So far, I've only lost 3 leaves. But. . . to ME, it's DRAMATIC!!! *swoons*
