Ghazanfar,
Thanks.

The water level was quite high when I collect the plants. I only manage to find very few plant. To cut down the risk of losing them all, I planted them in different substrates. All of them are doing well with new leaf growing, and I even have plantlets growing now.

The flowering plant is planted in 30% baked clay:30% garden soil: 30% peat: 10% ADA power sand. To my experience, this combination doesn't have as high survival rate as ADA soil. However, it has the advantage of low cost and hence I tried it again. Obviously it suite this crypt well. In less then two months I have 3 new leafs and a flower.

DelawareJim & DelawareJim,

Thanks for the kind comment. The work is inspired by the expert like Ghazanfar and Xema who take breath taking photographs. With the lost of crypt habbitate everyday, lets hope we can document as much as possible before they are gone.

I still have a lot to learn from you guys. I suppose the next I want to research on is how to pollinate the flower. Anyone know where I can find article on that or anyone can share thier experience?

Thanks.

BTW, with the rate of this crypt growing, I should have some plantlet to share/exchange in the near future.
