Cryptocoryne Undulatus Melting?

    I have quite a lot of Cryptocoryne undulatus brown in my tank. Some of the leaves are green with brown stems but I have a few that are brown. I felt them and they feel the same as the others. Are they melting or do some leaves go this way? IMG_20180617_123207.jpg

    A lot of crypts do turn a nice brown color, if they're not mushy and seem healthy then I'd take it as normal. Did it come in emersed form and are the brown leaves the younger or older leaves?

    I believe they were emersed grown. Bought them from an online store. I'd say it's a mixture of new and old leaves that have turned brown. Definitely not mushy.

    I believe with a lot of crypts the submersed growth looks very different from emersed, eventually since this is a 'brown' variety all the leaves will look like that.

    Thanks for the advice. I prefer the look of the brown leaves so hopefully they all go that way
