Ken Posted October 23, 2021 Share Posted October 23, 2021 I did an experiment with some new plants. They were bought local and were really sad, I figured the crypts were dead. I wasn't able to get some wet hands time right then so they had to hang out in a bucket for most of a week, by then they were seriously dead. I finally had time to put them in my newest tank. I figured the worst that could happen is they would provide ammonia for the cycle so I planted them. Sand substrate from the hill above the house a root tab each and a triple dose of EZ Green liquid. I put set the Kasa plug for 4 hours on 4 hours off based on posts by @Streetwise. I ran it like that for several weeks. The crypts recovered!? The other plants act like they have lived there forever. YMMV. But I think for a plant only cycle turning the light off and on every 4 hours might be worth trying. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
