| | C. crispatula 'tonkinensis' or 'kubotae'
After reading some confusing and seemingly conflicting material on whether "Tonkinensis" and "Kubotae" are the same, different, or one is the former "flaccidifolia", etc., I believe I am satisfied (having now read through the Crypts Pages
) that C. crispatula
is the former C. crispatula
, and that C. crispatula
is the very-thin-leaved grass-like crypt
that some shops are selling as "Tonkinensis".
Here's my question: does anyone know if the "Tonkinensis" sold by GLA (tissue culture
) is actually "Kubotae"? Has anyone tried it and grown it out? I purchased some to test it, and I did send an email to the folks at GLA for additional information, but have not heard back from anyone.
