There are some really beautiful pictures on this thread.
Since this is the Crypt club according to the thread title I thought I'd put this here.
I'm interested in buying one (1) Crypt Parva but can't find one(the only site not in China that I found which has them wants
a $43.00 shipping charge for orders less than $50) and I wonder if someone here may have one they'd not mind parting/w.
Due to lease limits I only have tenG tanks and don't really know what they'd say if they knew I had two of them.
So I like the smallest of plants that don't require Co2.

Looks good!



Does anyone have experience with Crypt. nurii creating a seed pod? I had a friend, who is also a bio major/plant nerd, come over a few days back to check out my plants. While looking at my crypts I noticed that one of my C. nurii had a dying seed pod. While I've seen crypts with seed pods during my research online, this still caught me by surprise. I will try to get some pictures of what is left today. I have not looked for any of the seeds.

Posted this one before, but this little guy just doesn't quit.

I like creepy things, vines included.

The C. pontederiifolia spathe is open.



I've got another plant that I think is a nurii with a spathe developing. I'll post once it is open.

More pictures in my emersed journal.

And crypts usually being able to grow in low light, what light level is that crypt growing so well at ?
I have no access to the better plants that I would like to have without mega spending on shipping
like most places that carry the better ones have. I HAD some Rotala Magenta which seems to be dieing
but may live. The place where I got it from was flim flamed by their dealer into getting some indica
which had been raised under bright lights by them and was pink so they slipped by as Magenta to
my LFS and I'm not going in there and argue/w them about that for sure. I went back and though
skeptical, bought a bunch of that but it soon showed it's true colors to me. Had got it as "I want more"
since the last was doing poorly but had fabulous color when bought. Need a new source.
But on this crypt...where can it be had from ?

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

Sorry I caught that after I posted but thought it might be recognized anyway. The red one in the post just
above my first post/reply.

Generally the best place to get plants is from sellers on this forum. Most people ship via USPS priority mail and plants are generally a lot cheaper and better quality from hobbyists. I sell mine from time to time when they make babies. You can also put a WTB (want to buy) add in the raok/wtb section of the forum and someone may contact you. I get all of my plants from hobbyists, as no LFS in my area have any rare varieties of plants.

Whoops, I didn't see Joshua's post above yours. I definitely agree that purchasing through fellow hobbyists is the way to go. I usually get mine through folks here on TPT but there are a couple crypt guys on APC that have some of the less common species you don't see here often.

Joshua, your plants are looking good man!
