cryptocoryne...????

Postby mikelufc22 » Sat Apr 07, 2007 1:39 pm

I have 6 large plants in my discus set up and they have grown up to the surface of my 260 ltr tank, the problem is they have, what can only be described as 'plantlets' growing on the tops of the main stems, smaller versions of themselves with roots and leaves....everthing, but the main plants leaves are now becoming transparent and slightly rusty looking, they were a really lovely two tone green but now........well,...any ideas on what i should next?

The plants you describe don't sound as though they are Cryptocorynes. Is there any chance you could share a picture with us?

Sounds like an aquatic fern. Java Fern and African ferns can do that.

do you trim off the plantlets at the top and re-plant them?

Sounds like you have some sort of an Echinidoras species. Some will send up a flower-stalk that has a small plant instead of a bud at its end.
