Our Cryptocoryne Lutea is ordered from our nursery who grows them emersed. Due to how slow Cryptocoryne Lutea grows, we sell them once we see 2 submerged leaves on the plant. This means that however many emersed leaves are left will probably melt after a few weeks in your tank. With the new submerged growth, the Lutea should be fine.
Cryptocoryne Lutea likes to stand up, as opposed to flopping over horizontally. Cryptocoryne Lutea requires a bit more light than the typical Crypt. Depending on lighting, either the leaves will grow tall towards the light or more horizontal. Lutea can be propagated by uprooting the whole plant and plucking baby plants from the side of the main root.
