Looks exactly like my Crypt wendti flowers. It is strange, why do some of them grow flowers underwater? Mine had a ton of flowers.... i dont get it, will it get seeded underwater?

It looks like wendtii to me, probably a green or red one from the looks of the inflorescence. Regardless of what it is, congratulations on the inflorescence!

Best,
Phil

The flower looks similar to the various wendtii flowers shown on Jan Bastmeijer's pages. If all your pictures are of the same cultivar, it certainly shows the famous wendtii variability due to growth condtions. I have a variety that is even browner when submersed---a dark chocolate brown on top and a dark red underneath. I got it as the "red" wendtii. I notice that the above plant does not have red underneath. Emersed it looks just like a wendtii I have that is very different submersed.

I think the best way to differentiate vareities is to grow them submersed.
