philipraposo1982 What are your emersed crypts planted in? Can you share with me more about your emersed setup?

Hobbes1911 These opened this morning. I'm quite happy with the progression of blooms, and I have to admit, the fusca spathe looks awesome!

In other news. I noticed one of my crypts has a spath at its base.. not sure if it had it when i got it (assuming these were emersed grown) or started after being planted in here.. Wanted to ask if any of the crypts on my lists are known to grow spathes when submerged? Specifically wendtii red or undulates?
Googling just gives me very unspecific answers saying "some species grow spathes under water that have to reach the surface to bloom.. some can open under water" but no info on which sp.... So any information on this would be appreciated!

philipraposo1982 My collection is getting at around 17 crypts and I would like to start up a small greenhouse, this one: http://www.lowes.ca/greenhouses/twd-..._g1430446.html

I plan to setup large trays to hold a pool of water and put a bunch of separate pots in them, each will be labeled with the plant suspected ID.

I am still unsure as to what potting media I want to use, and where I will be putting this mini greenhouse.

Do you guys see this as a viable idea? Anything I should consider before attempting this emersed setup?

Thanks for that. Figured it came from overseas. I've never pulled the trigger on foreign orders. I've been in touch with someone in Indonesia regarding buces, but just can't garner up the courage to do it. Very tempting at $3 - $5 per plant. I was just going to put in a larger order and then spread the wealth. Can't get myself to do it though.

philipraposo1982 Crazy looking!

Hobbes1911 Holy moly! The rotting flesh smell is strong in this one! I am glad it's in a covered tank, otherwise the wife would definitely not take too kindly to my hobby!

Hobbes1911 The C. sp 'Lingga 19 Platinum line' should open soon:


This plant has been blooming for me pretty much nonstop. I'm going to try to extract the spathe once it's open and look into the pollination chamber.
