Wet spot


I was just there last night and they got some crypt "florida sunset" in stock. This new cultivar is pretty rare, so if you have been looking for it, go pick some up!

I've read that crypt needs high light...is this true? I would love to get some!

I have read varying things online ranging from needing alot of light to maintain coloration, to moderate light with trace elements added. My guess is iron and magnesium trace elements in addition and medium lighting or higher will maintain the variegation. As for keeping the plant alive and growing, the same conditions as other cryps would apply. I would try them out for yourself, even the non variegated looks I have seen are nice, a more pinkish version of the bronze wendtii.
