C fusca's spathe finally opened last night. But is this truely c fusca? It is not the same c fusca I know from Jan's crypt pages.




The tip of the spathe is extremely short compared to the ones shown in the crypt pages:
http://crypts.home.xs4all.nl/Cryptoc...y/fus/fus.html




Any ideas on the true identity of my crypt? A hybrid of some sort? I cannot find a spathe on anywebsite that matches mine.

Hmm, interesting....it certainly looks different from the pics of C fusca spathes I've seen. Maybe you should post this on APC? There seems to be a bigger 'world' audience there.

On another note, how's your greenhouse coming along? Can't wait to see it come to fruition.

I'll post this over at apc to see if I can get some more opinions on it

Not much progress on the greenhouse. I still have a ton of river stones to relocate. I did talk to my neighbor though. He is a retired contractor and he will lend me a hand on putting up the frames when I am ready

I have another bloom report. c legroi

Thanks. There were further discussion on my apc thread and came to the conclusion that not all fusca will have a twisted limb. We are suspecting that this plant is indeed c fusca

C legroi's spathe opened today but I am a bit confused. I originally thought this was a form of walkeri but the spathe resembles a c wenditti. I got the plant from chad but I think this was from a credible European source.

The submerged and emerged form resembles the c legroi I came across on the Internet but the spathe is throwing me off

Default Piptospatha propagation

by side shoot. This is for anyone else that hasn't noticed how it propagates.

Hmm is that a picture of your piptospatha Xue? If it is that's awesome because I've been trying to figure out how these things propagate, mine is looking amazing 7 leaves on it and each one is bigger than the last, my Bakoa are doing good as well lots of new leaves on them they seem to be a pretty fast grower.

I was informed it was another Wendtii variety, but I am also not sure. Mine has never put up a spathe. Thats TWICE one of the plants I sent has bloomed for you and not for me I am glad someone is doing good with them My setup is rebounding nicely but I dont expect too many spathes just yet.

Thanks.

Len that is one of my plant. I thought it was a root originally but it looked a little odd until I saw a tiny leaf forming

Chad, I have plenty of the two crypts you sent me, if you need any back to repopulate your culture, let me know and I'll send some back to you

Hmm, now I'm going to have to look a lot closer to both my piptospatha and bakoa because both have a lot of new roots shooting out, I'm wondering if any are offshoots, I'd love to split the piptospatha it has doubled since I got it from you and by the number of shoots into the soil I'm sure it has a nice root base forming, ill find out soon because my terrarium is almost ready to plant and it will go into it.
