"This brand new Cryptocoryne, is a Cultivar, created from a mutation in the wild of the C.cordata species, and bred to grow to this rare Flamingo pink colour. Because it is produced in a Tissue Culture laboratory, it is supplied in a plastic culture dish, but can be readily rooted by the Hobbyist, and will grow and spread out, over a matter of 2-3 months. ''

Your thoughts???

Can't wait for my Flamingo to come in and then die because I don't know WTF I'm doing with it! :bounce:

Chad gave me a tiny baby of Flamingo a while back and it never grew for me in my tank. Suffice to say it later disappeared. :( I'm not sure if Chad was ever able to grow it out either... maybe he'll chime in.

I see you posted my thread on nurii leaf variations I need to update it with new pics, I've finally figured out what's happening the leaves are starting with long petioles and rounder light green leaves as the leaf matures its getting really broad and dark colored and really looks a lot like a wendetti leaf grown under high light, I have it growing right next to a wendetti mi oya and the mature leaves are almost identicle other than some dark hashes on the nurii..

I have great suspicion about that bizzarly unnatural color. I do have to think it would not be that much unlike other Cordata Sp. If when new what they "built" it from that might help.

Just like every other crypt out there it will probably look different in every tank

Nice start guys. I dont have the time to jump on board right away, but I will find the time this weekend. Speedie, I do have a Flamingo left but its a sorry little tiny piece but it has put out 3 leaves this month so its at least finally acclimated and growing. In 3-5 short I should have a full size plant :)

Crypt garden - puts a lot of our emersed setup into shame.

Yeah his garden is amazing I love the small streams he is setting up for crypts, I hasn't looked in a while has he finnaly planted them, also speaking of crypts I think Xue sent me a crypt Christmas present and since I just landed i'll be getting it shortly..

My friend growing that "new" crypt says it's actually a C. wendtii cultivar. Just throwing that in.

I would agree that the pics I have seen make it look a lot more like a wendetti than a Cordata but maybe it is a hybrid of the two..

Len,

Are you sure this is the plant you got from me? Crypt Nurii mutated? I've been growing it for over a year now and none of my plants look anything close to any wendtii variants. :/
