80 liter tank, co2 injected with medium light. Huge patch of Wendii Green on the far left along with another Wendii variety could be either Undulatus or Mi oya. Wendii Brown on the right side that I had to remove last week.

Blue Ridge Reef outstanding! Do you have an overall shot of the tank?

It's really not too impressive and like most of my tanks, in need of a tear down and rescape.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.

TLDR version
Since this tank's beginning, all but a couple of the original plants have died off and I've since moved around all but one of the survivors. These crypts were neglected for a very long time and I know I need to remove a few of the unsightly leaves. I'd appreciate any opinions regarding this post.
I think this was sold to me as c. wendtii 'tropica' but i'm not so sure it is because I've seen photos online with wendtii 'tropica' having marbling such as here, here, & here, whereas the top of these leaves are mostly green, and the underside of them are reddish brown. Opinions?


These photos are what I think was sold to me as c. undulata 'red' or possibly c. nurii, but I don't think c. nurii because the leaves are too narrow. This could be c. wendtii 'tropica' and I mislabeled it when I originally purchased it. However, this online photo looks like what I have. Opinions?


Sorry for the terrible photos! Thanks for checking this out!

I don’t think its Undulata. This is what the adult plant looks like from my old emersed tank.



Looks like a narrow leaf Wendtii var. I have an idea of what it could be but I don’t want to guess, the best way to ID crypts is to see its spathe. I wish I could help!

Yessir I was very lucky to have been able to keep range of crypts I had and in several cases watch then flower. Most of my rare crypts were traded or donated to me by avid collectors and vendors, some as bare root rhizomes near death lol. I would (not always) be able to resuscitate them in my emersed setup and give the babies to the original donors. I can dig up the list of what I kept if you’d like.

Unfortunately, I had to sell or donate my collection when we did a major renovation to the house. I gave this plant to a fellow collector in NYC.

Thanks for sharing this--looks amazing! Didn't realize crypts would grow in such a cold climate?

nature is amazing!

not only shangri-la, the route I took were full of different species of aquatic plants if there was water body.

right outside of Tibet, about 8000-9000ft, crypts were so dense, literately formed a mat, water fowls walking on it.


a family of red bill coot




other than crypts:
flowering Ottelia acuminata
