    Hi Joe,

    I am not harvesting and selling my cryptocorynes currently but if you are interested to be poisoned, I can introduce some contacts whom you can buy cryptcorynes from, just pm me for it.

    Regards,
    T S Wang

    C. cf. scurrilis 'Lingga' - yet another collected specimen with spathe attached, should be a reddish form in the wild but I was not able to locate any blooming flowers at the collection locality to confirm
