Nice looking plants, how are you keeping them? I see clay pots in an aquarium. Whats in the pots? Any cover on the tank? Photoperiod? Thanks
Thanks dude!These are in a 20 L covered with glass cover. The substrate is combination of used Amazonia II and Bright Sand. The light is on for 10 Hours a day. I mist it two times daily.

Look like someone here in Houston got a cause of Crypt fever. Great job man! I know where to go if I ever need some.

So now that a few folks from Houston have the fever, has anyone collected C. beckettii from the San Marcos?

Cheers.

Hey Jim, it was good meeting you at the AGA convention. We tried last year. But there was some construction going around the river where the crypts were supposed to be. We have a confirmed sighting from another spot now. We will try to collect it this year during the Houston PlantFest.
Thanks

Hey Bhushan, it was nice meeting you as well. Don't forget your friends in GWAPA if you're able to collect some this year. :D There are a couple of us that would be interested in comparing it with what we have and adding to our collections.

Cheers.

Oh?

When is this outing and who's going? I've got some extended family in San Antonio and might be able to find an excuse to come to Texas.

Cheers.
