hedge_fund Took two random pics today as I was enjoying my morning coffee. First pic is just a regular Crypt Nurii and second is an Ideii and Nurii side by side.

toksyn It's not all that uncommon for me either.

hedge_fund Is this normal with C. Nuriis where the roots tend to grow out of the substrate? I've had this happen in multiple setups with varying substrates (akadama, aquasoil and eco-complete). It's never the full root system growing out of the substrate but just a few stragglers here and there. This isn't some type of deficiency, is it?

No worries, we've all been there. I started in 2005 as a broke college student asking people for free plants on here and APC. Luckily, there were tons of nice people giving out their plants to newbies like myself...a small priority box was only $3.85 back then! Usually when I RAOK off a plant I tend to give it to college students as I indirectly feed them in a strange way. As a student I remember occasionally having to decide between lunch or plants and there were multiple instances when I would choose the latter.

7 years ago I used to start threads like this....check out the date

I would definitely be interested in a source if you find one!

Nice, glad to see more and more people growing it out. Just means that soon it's going to be all over in the for sale section.

You guys must be good since I haven't really been able to find it over the last 2 weeks.

wicca27 i have loved that one since i first saw it. i am wanting to get alot more crypts. right now i have one i dont know what it is and the only other one i keep is lutea. i guess mine just gets alot of light cause my lutea turns red alot lol
07-28-2013 03:17 PM
johnson18 I know there are a few members on here with 'Flamingo' so it can probably be found. I've also been looking around trying to figure out what I want to add to my collection next! Haven't quite decided yet, there are so many cool crypts available!

Yeah the Mioya is a nice one as well but unfortunately I have it in one of my tanks. As you said above, you do not see this plant sold here all that often. If I did not have it then I'd definitely be up for a trade.

I am currently on the hunt for a pink flamingo but nobody seems to have it. I have been trying to buy one for the last few months.....I almost want to import it from Germany.
