    wow! after two years of entertainment by a naked duck

    even the flower looks like the jamban.
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Although Budaks skinny white hairy legs are probably very sexy, I think Id prefer to see the Crypt. No offense to Budak or his duck

    Oh sorry... forgot about this post... anyway, there's not much to it really. The plant is in a normal plastic pot with a mix of potting soil and aquarium gravel, in a covered planter tray with my other crypts. In growing these crypts emersed, I find that adding NO3 tends to trigger meltdowns (after a couple of months they recover), so I now add only a capful of Profito and a little Equilibrium to the water when I do a change of the water in the tray (about every 2-3 months). The more I leave them alone, the better.

    It would be nice to see your entire setup. I am trying one out, just one crypt in a pot with regular soil and regular watering with spray misting once or twice a day. It doesn't get any direct sunlight but it is near a window. The crypt is growing, albeit slowly, putting out about one leaf per month.

    It has been several months (4-5 months) since I planted this crypt emersed and it has shed all the old leaves. What you see are all new and emersed leaves, with a new leaf sprouting.

    Nice one Budak

    I love the flower on your Undulata, very nice, well done
    I am hoping that my Pontederrifolia will bloom this spring.

    What are you feeding your Crypts?
