Quick question on planting crypts....
I got 2 types of crypts from another member, and was wondering what the best way to plant them is. They are the Parva and Beckettii. My question is is it ok to trim off the roots prior to planting, or should I leave them intact? They are very long and making it difficult to plant, as the Eco in my 29G isn't quite as deep as it is in my 75G, and when I bury the roots at the plant, then try to bury the roots towards the end, it uproots the plant. Then when I try to plant the plant end, the end pops out of the substrate.
I also got some HC. Boy, let me tell you, if you want HC, be prepared and dedicated to planting, lol. I just planted some, and am floating some. Will see how it goes.....
