(*1) Experience: I had no problems in water with pH approx. 7.5.
(*2) Experience: With higher light intensity and enough nutrition colours are more vivid. Under low light intensity leaves are greenish or brownish.
(*3) Experience: I was able to grow it in a very hard water.
(*4) Experience: In my case it took 6 months of waiting and then I saw first tiny plantlets. Of course as usual, it depends on lightning, nutrition, etc. As for the growth speed I would compare it to Cryptocoryne parva but any comparison is a bit tricky.
(*5) There are speculations about its origin.

 

Additional info:
Nutrient rich substrate (with Fe), CO2 addition and higher light intensity makes this Crypt true beauty.
