I am usually reluctant in posting some of the rarer plants since it usually leads to 50 PMs with everyone asking where you got it or if you can sell it to them LOL.
This. :D


In this case though affinis 'Pahang Berat' Metallic Red is fairly easy to find on the forums for sale.

I've found C affinis to be one of the tougher to grow Crypts emergent however.
I've done it, but it was troublesome compared to many other species. Grows like a weed under water.

A very popular plant back in the 1970's. 1 st Crypt I ever had.

I totally agree. Every affinis I've tried to convert to emersed has melted on me.

I'm pretty certain that Crispino grew this submersed though.

Hopefully an affinis 'Metallic Red' spathe photo is attached.
They are grown emersed at a pH of about 8. They are not a specie that is given any special care.They do not seem to be a problem to grow but do not flower frequently.
