Looking good man! Give them a few months and you won't even be able to see the pots

How long have you been growing that crypt? I've been waiting to see if mine would ever spathe, but I am not sure of how long it takes.

Nice! C. pontederiifolia tends to throw up several spathes in a row (mine did, at least), so be sure to give it lots of ferts to keep it happy.

EDIT: Actually that might be a second spathe forming on the right side of the plant in the 1st and 3rd pics
