Re: Check out Cryptocoryne site


This is a Japanese site with several nice photographs. Thank you for the
reference. As almost always with Cryptocoryne, there is scant ID information.
And the pictures do not contain an internal measurement reference (ruler) for
sizing, or information regarding the conditions of culture (Cryptocoryne are
notorious for widely differing leaf forms depending on culture). Those
interested in Cryptocoryne may also want to check The Crypt Pages, a site
(http://www.bart.nl/~crypts), which can be found on search engines by simply
searching "Cryptocoryne". There are many pictures here, and the site seems to
reflect current European opinion as to IDs. This site is well designed, but is
run by a hobbyist as a labor of love. Those hoping to ID their unknown Crypts
will be mostly out of luck. For ID purposes, better to just keep track of the
source, original nomenclature, and comments like ". . . looks like the picture
in . . . ". The Crypt Pages does contain some useful culturing information.
Cryptocorynes are popular in aquarist circles since they usually can be grown
submerged.
