Haven't posted in a minute but I still have my crypts. Haven't had much time for them but they are all pretty healthy for the most part. Cool news, I have spotted 10 fruits/seed pods growing. I already have 2 that matured.

Mature fruit from a C. wendtii hybrid







25 seeds from one and 20 from the other. I've grown about 5 fruits before and the most seeds I got was 10-12. Some of the fruits I have this year are very large. So far this season I found 8 on my C. wendtii hybrid plants, 2 in C. beckettii, 2 in C. wendtii green gecko, and 1 in C. undulata. I had experimented with attracting large quantities of fruit flies to my setups and It appears to have paid off. I'll be posting more about the process and will be giving away some seeds so others can try their luck at growing from seed.
