    ck, that's a emersive crypt? I was also wondering when i browse through the crypt web site, but all flowers they have are from emersive crypt?

    If not flower, anybody knows what it is?

    hmm, the flowers should be the same emersed or submersed. though crypt usually flower when the plant is emersed, but the flower will reach out of the water cos it is pollinated by insects (unlike Didiplis diandra: submersed pollination).

    The flower looks like Nuphar's leh, though unusual for it to bloom underwater. Pull it out lah, see where it leads to.

    actually looked like a stunted lotus flower.
    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.
