    I love crypts too. But I have a small tank and only have the following.

    C. albida
    C. grifithii
    C. pontederiifolia
    C. undulata
    C. wendtii "brown"
    C. wendtii "green"
    C. wendtii "tropica"

    All the above a quite common and easy-to-grow crypts though.

    Crypts are very nice to plants and definately easier to maintain and manage then most stem plants. To collect all of them, that is not easy. LOL.

    Maybe we can ask the Botanic Garden to start a cryptocoryne collection. Then all the cryptofanatics can go there and drool.

    Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia is not our native plant, most likely from aquarium trade. Do look out for Cryptocoryne ciliata, according to the Singapore Red Data Book of Threatened Plants, this plant is extinct in our natural environment.

    Cryptocoryne Xtimahensis can only be found in Singapore. The plant's only known habitat is somewhere in our nature reserve. Please do not collect the plant, thats illegal.

    I see, thanks for the information. Cool to have Singapore's very own crypt

    Hope this is not off topic, but other than C. griffithii, C. Xtimahensis and C. ciliata, what else can/could have been found in Singapore?

    Did a search on google.
    http://www.nationaalherbarium.nl/Cry...y/cil/cil.html
    Apparently, someone named Chan took photos of ciliata (if that's what it is) in Upper Thomson area.

    My view is, unless you see yourself as an expert grower, try to leave those plants that are endangered/threatened alone. If you try to collect it on your own, it may not make it in your home, if you try to buy it, you will fuel the demand, drive up the prices (if many of us do it) pushing the plants further into endangerment. You should get them only if you're confident it will survive under your care, and you can, hopefully propagate it.

    I'm already tearing my hair out with C. griffithii. And since the C. pontederiifolia have yet to flower i have no idea what species it really it. I might have ciliata without knowing it. As for C. timahensis, i'm sure if you beg NUS enough they'll sell you one of their specimens...

    I've got an interesting theory on how it got there though. If i'm not mistaken, the 2 parent plants are found in Johor, not singapore. And in Singapore, it's only found by a small man-made dam in Bukit Timah, constructed by the Japanese in WWII. Now, lets ask outselves, what do NS men find between their boot soles? Mud!

    And we all know how hardy the Cryptocoryne rhizome is. So isn't it logical to assume that during their push down malaysia into singapore, a Japanese soldier managed to step on both of the 2 parent plants, transport them all the way down to Singapore, and then, dislodged them as he washed his boots in the stream?

    Then the 2 rhizomes somehow managed to grow and flower, their close proximity meant the chances of a hybrid were increased. And BANG! timahensis was born. As for the parents i guess they got eaten after their flowers turned to fruits?

    Have you considered the more probably possibility that long long ago there was no such thing as the Straits of Johor? Well, to be exact, what is now the straits would have been occupied by a river of varying breadths fed by tributaries from both 'johor' and 'singapore'.
