Hello everyone

This is my first post here, but i read this forum almost everyday.

I've got a Cryptocoryne from Japan that came to me as a C. pygmaea but i dont think its the real classification of it. It growns real fast, but i have no flower yet.

Anyone can id it, please?



Sorry the bad quality of the photo and my terrible english... :oops::oops::oops::oops::oops:

Thank you all..

That most definitely is not C. pygmaea! It looks like it's one of the wendtii-becketii-walkeri-undulata type crypts. I hope you didn't pay too much for it, since these are relatively common cryptocorynes.

Thanks for the reply, Carlos and lorba.

I remember thant, when i bought this plant i bought also a C. wendtii 'Mi oya'.

When the plants arrived to me, one of them had died and the other(this one)i 'saved'.

I´m wondering...could this Crypto be a C. wendtii 'Mi oya'???

Once again, thanks for the feedback of everyone!

Best regards

The Mi Oya I get in has generally redder leaves that are thinner, pointed and have undulated edges---Could it be another wendtii morph?

Hi folks,

Im wondering...couldnt it be a C. wendtii 'red'?

Wendtii has so many subspecies and human made varieties that it gets too difficult to know exactly which plant is.

Thank you all
