Looking good!
That first plant tho, I think it's just C. usteriana, not C. usteriana x walkeri

C. undulata spaeth



bought this as C. usteriana x walkeri, it may just be C. usteriana, any thoughts?



Finally got my Anubias minima to flower, first in over 2 years



I found this very random spaeth, this species is still unidentified, I always find melted spaeths, there are about 6 right now so hopefully I can get it identified



I've found all sorts of random things inside my humidity domes but this was a little odd considering the holes at the top are less then the diameter of a #2 pencil



C. beckettii side by side with C. wendtii 'tropica', which is which?? lol.



C. beckettii is on the left

Nice looking crypts. Do you leave them outside year round?

Thanks!!! Yep all year round on my screened in patio unless it gets below 50 degrees F outside. I even was trying to keep them outside in temperatures near that. I got some very heavy blankets and Styrofoam and some other insulated coverings. Today it was 97 degrees F outside, I was a little worried that they would bake but they seemed to adapt to the high temp just fine. Today was the hottest it's been to date this year. I keep them in spots where they get direct sun for a few hours but spend most of the day in shade. Tomorrow I am going to monitor the water temperatures and I'll post the data.

That's amazing how wide of a temp. range they seem to be able to tolerate.

Hi: it's similar to one "cf. becketti" that I have and I've shown in this thread http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...beckettii.html. I've got it from AquaticMagic as c. becketti, but apparently is a c. lucens (it's similar to a c.lucens that I have)or some wendtii or becketti hybrid.

Regards
