It looks more like a mi oya. But I will need to take a closer picture of the plant.

Please keep us updated on the minima! I've tried C. minima 'Bukit Merah' and C. minima 'Pudingbesar' submersed with no success. Yours look very promising.

This is very cool. I am planning out a 20G setup that will go into the museum and I want it to be strictly unusual crypts so this is helpful.

It is very promising... the new leaves are getting bigger as it is fully converted to submerse condition. Also they displaying a pink hue underneath with some bullate.

My new addition did not come in too well. This is/was C. Flamingo. It was lost in USPS's lala land for 5 days. The roots look alive. I have 4 roots: two were buried and two were floated.

I should've known better to ship USPS during Christmas week but I was too impatient.

The leaves and most of the roots have melted. There are 1-2 surviving roots left from each plants.
