    C. sp. 'Singkep 3' - I felt that the spathe looked like that of C. schulzei but my friend felt that the female flower looked like that of C. xtimahensis instead. Whichever it is, it proved that such species are more widely distributed that what we currently know (i.e. in Johor / Singapore).

    C. bullosa 'Pakan' - The spathe had to be dug out in order for the entire spathe to be phtographed as the specimens are all deeply rooted with only the limb of the spathe sticking out of the substrate.


    C. bullosa 'Sungai Seblak' - a well known location for C. bullosa

    C. sp. 'Singkep 6' - a collected spathe bloomed, the shape of the spathe looked quite like that of C. griffithii but not the "hairy" limb

    hi,

    impressive. Brings back memories.

    BTW do you have photos of the xtimahensis flower?

    Nope, NParks rejected my application for permission to trek off designated path to reach the C. x timahensis natural habitat to take photographes of it. Haha.

    Do you really need a permit to go off track?
    why don't you just trek in without a permit?

    Re: Flowers of my Cryptocoryne collection / field trip



    According to item 1(j), straying off designated trail is prohibited. Item 2 stated that offenders would be liable to a fine not exceeding $50,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months or both if convicted. Even if I did went in, I would not be able to publish anything over the forum / blog as that would be evidence. Therefore, its not worth it.

    Does this act also apply to Thomsons and Mandai areas? I thought i saw some C. griffithii and C. pontederiifolia in those areas.

    Hi illumbomb,

    That's a shame, considering you're doing it for the purpose of educating the public.
    Did they cite any reason for the rejection?

    NParks highlighted that they are currently conducting research at that site so they do not want their research to be disturbed. Also, they do not wish to attract unnecessary attention to the site via blog postings. I think their concerns are somewhat valid. Nevermind, there are still many sites left around South East Asia for me to visit.

    It is stated within the Parks and Trees Act that the restrictions are applicable to National Parks and National Reserves. And under the schedule of the Act, the T.S., Mukim and Lot numbers of the areas designated as National Parks and National Reserves are listed.

    Do a check using SLA's LandQuery free online service (switch to Lot View) and you should be able to determine whether the area which you saw the cryptocorynes are within or out of areas designated as National Parks and National Reserves. Thats all I understood from the Act.
