I brought in several varieties of Cryptocoryne plants that were "tissue
cultured" from Holland a little over 4 years ago. They were hardy;
took a great deal of abuse and never suffered the Cryptocoryne
"melting" that usually occured when a change of lots of water was done.
I still have them growing profusely. These were not in "rock wool" yet!
