    I'm wondering about the variety of this species that is commonly available in the USA. I had a lot of this growing w/o trouble in my 46g, but got rid of it because it never developed the nice ruffled edges that I see pictures of in books, for instance, in "Aquarium Plants," by Kasselmann. Did I have the wrong variety to expect that or could it be that it wasn't getting the nutrients it needed to develop that kind of display? What are other people's experiences with this crypt?

    Less current, less CO2 and less light will induce ruffling in many plants.
