The leaf shape isn't like PF. The color is nice..but not like PF either. The leafs also being different color...almost like it was green,then turned color under more light or Co2.
Mail order plant?

Agreed with what you said, Iím truly unsure of what species this is. I bought it from my lfs, they did not know what species it is either. They said it just popped up in one of their tanks one day.

Sorry -- that was a joke. "Audrey 2" is the human-eating, talking, dancing Venus Flytrap in the movie "Little Shop of Horrors". She mysteriously appeared in a plant shop during a solar eclipse, presumably from outer space. If you've ever heard "Feed Me Seymour" that's the movie the quote comes from.

If you can grow the new Crypt emergent in a terrarium (or in very shallow water) you might get a flower, which will help in identifying the species. A guy in my local club uses large plastic soda bottles cut in half and then taped back together. It's a beaultiful plant -- I'd love to know what it is.

I might just try that as the plant had 3 baby plants. Could you find out what he uses for substrate?i do suppose that it varies from crypt to crypt though as some species prefer acidic and others basic.

Any update on this? I know that C. legroi (I *think* it is a subgroup of C. walkerii - ?) can show varying shades of green to pink, dependent on light levels, and the leaf width would fit with C. legroi. Do the young leaves show more pink, then dull to grayish green? I had C. legroi a few years back, and it would tease me with those young pink leaves, but they didn't stay that color as they matured.
