Sorry for the late reply Steve. I didn't see your question until now.
The bulbo was grown in the open in my living room. The spike dried (probably due to central air running) out so I am growing it in a enclosed container to maintain a 70-80% humidity.

FYI: Crypt. sp. Bukit Ibam "Yellow Ring"

For those who received a Crypt sp. "Bukit Ibam" from me, Jan had recently described this as a natural hybrid between c nurii and c cordata.

Maybe someone else may disagree but I think an ID is going to be impossible without a photo of the bloom.

As long as you have at least a node or two in each pieces of rhizome, I am fairly certain that plantlets will sprout. I find multiplying buces faster this way, especially if you planted them submerged. Each trimmed rhizome will sprout multiple side shoots.

They are pretty new in cultivation but I wouldn't expect them to grow very fast they will probably be like Buces in that regard maybe a leaf or two a month

Hey, Lurker up in Canada. Just read through the thread, love everything your doing here. Beautiful plants, excellent progress on your green house.

Wish I could get my hands on even a tenth of the crypt collection you have.

Exotic crypts are rare up here, I've collected wendtii, tropica, parva and some nurii.

LMK if anyone is willing to ship up north!

Again great work, love the anubias too!

Cheers,

Matt
