| | Re: Cryptocoryne spec. “Flamingo”
From what I gathered from the poor translation I could get from googles translator it does grow slow. They don't seem to know much about how the pink is attained though. It says, or according to the poor translation, that the pink stays with it until the leaves start to wilt? Some people also argue that it may be some sort of disease of the chlorophyll or some other aspect. It would be interesting to get the opinion of someone like Keei or Jan on this particular crypt.
This is what I found about it on a few sites
"This brand new Cryptocoryne, is a Cultivar, created from a mutation in the wild of the C.cordata species, and bred to grow to this rare Flamingo pink colour. Because it is produced in a Tissue Culture laboratory, it is supplied in a plastic culture dish, but can be readily rooted by the Hobbyist, and will grow and spread out, over a matter of 2-3 months.
