I got the following Cryps as samples from Florida Aquatic Nurseries so i could photograph them for a magazine. The plants were free, but I paid 50 dollars for the overnight shipping. I am just trying to get part of that back.

I am offering each of the plants, (I only have one of each) for $5 plus $6.00 for priority mail shipping. One person can take them all, or not, first come first serve. Payment by paypal to [email protected] Contact me faster at the same email than PMing me.

The following photos are of the actual plants

C. albida SoLd


same plant in a tank




cryptocoryne tonkinensis Sold



C parva potted pending



same plant



C affinis SOLD




not pictured;

C. willisii
C. petchii, yes, i know its syn for something else

unidentified Cryp; possibly nuri, or hudori..something lke that. I have no idea. The leaves are undulated, dark red on both sides with markings on the top side. There are actually two plants, one attached to the other, both 8 to 12 inches and each with 3 or 4 leaves. FAN recieved the plant from Singapore by accident. Nobody knows what it is is. It is unique looking. Healthy, long white roots. $15.00

I think i answered everyone. Nobody wants the mystery cryp! what if its some extremely rare cryp that people have been looking for a hundred years...

:eek:

OK, I will take a photo tommorrow. I'm going home.

BTW, I also have LARGE usteriana, some blassi, and really nice undulata potted...

parva is bought and paid for, the mystery Cryp, which I am told may be albida brown, is pending!

That means all that is left is the willissii and petchii, which aren;t anything special, i think I will just give them to one of the buyers... so that means we are done here folks! Thanks for looking.

Well you are the third person who has asked me that, so I am going to ask florida aquatic if they will let me have any more. I will let you know.

ALL plants are now sold. You can see these photos in the March 2010 issue of Freshwater and Marine Aquarium magazine in a feature article I wrote Cryptocorynes, 50 years in the aquarium!

I know March sounds far away, but it actually goes to print in January.
