Crypt recovers from melting

Hi all.

I cleaned out the betta tank today and noticed a bit of growth in the crypt plants that goldfish7 sent me a while ago. Of the 3 plants, one had melted entirely and I threw it away. The other two I left in the tank because I had heard that they often recover from the trauma of melting. So one plant, which had retained one leaf, now has a new leaf coming, and some new roots growing. The second one, which had melted to a nub with a few roots, now has some green appearing on the nub, and more roots! I'm very glad that the plants are recovering.

I look forward to them growing out. From the pictures Goldfish7 sent, they are really unusual - kind of bright green with bronze stems and veins.

I haven't had much luck with plants in the betta tank, so it's nice to see something happening.

My crypts melt and come back and melt and come back. Finally some are starting to get big in my desktop tank -- yay!
