Sapere_Ceta Posted December 15, 2020 Share Posted December 15, 2020 (edited) Hi everyone! I added a cryptocoryne hudoroji recently to my plant holding tank on December 3rd. The other plants I ordered, some other types of cryptocorynes too, are doing really well. I am pretty certain this is my mistake for not cutting the stems or roots back initially. But regardless, within days of adding the plant, it melted back completely. I haven’t had aquarium plants for years because my disability made me have to take down all of my aquariums, and I’m trying to currently have one 20 gallon (to hopefully not push things over the edge, but still allow me to do what I enjoy). So I am pretty rusty. I feel as though I waited it out too long, and now the majority of the roots are very smelly and soggy (definitely rotting). I cut them back to about an inch, and removed any yucky goo off the top of the base of the plant. Is there anything else I should do, and should I continue to be patient or is the plant not going to make a comeback?
