    Hi plant Guru's.
    I ordered two C. Wendtii "Brown" that i received today, they are still in the immersed form and should melt away. But should i plant the rhizome thingy completely in the substrate or only the roots like unubia's?
    Thank you very much

    Pikkie, plant your crypts witht the rhizome burried and the crown slightly underneath or level with the substrate.
    I usually just plonk them down and then give then a gentle "tug" to rasie the crown to just underneath the gravel.
