I've been growing out this cryptanthus for about a month and I'm seeing that its prouting more stars.
Is there a way to detach these so I can start growing more and have numerous pink stars?
I have take some bromeliads and broke off some pups and stuck them in some sphagnum moss and they are growing but not rooting.
I'm wanting to put a few pink stars in the tank I'm about to start so that's why I was wondering if they can be picked off then planted or wedged in some wood with some moss.
I would by more but this is the only one I've found.
Pics below

Thanks

Also there seems to be tiny grey bugs in the crypts....
Are these bugs harmful? And can I get rid of them?

yes, the stolon will become more apparent as the pups grow. cut near the base of the mother plant, not the pup.
The grey bugs...are they fluffy looking? like little bits of cotton? or are they springtails?

I know they aren't springtails. Springtails look like lil white ants or termites.
I think they might be neally bugs or whatever they're called.
They infested my Orchids when I had them but only one of the orchids survived.
I'm not very good with orchids lol
I got the crypts from Walmart...
