Cryptocoryne wendtii ‘Florida Sunset’

Thanks to a local club member, I finally have the recently announced new Cryptocoryne wendtii cultivar ‘Florida Sunset.’ That plant made its appearance at the last AGA’08 convention in Atlanta. Hearing the $120 price tag at the auction I decided to wait few months until the plant was available in local pet shops. Not sure if economy had a direct impact or market is already over-saturated but the price tag nowadays is very affordable ~$10. I noticed a lot of hobbyists are in the possession of it and they are growing it sub/emersed so we should be able to spread this plant around fairly quickly. Stay tune for an update !

C. wendtii ‘Green Gecko’ – spathe

And the “flowering game” began. I’m the proud owner of C. wendtii ‘Green Gecko’ ~2″ flower. I photographed most of the plants few days ago and did not notice the flower. Last night I looked closely and saw what I thought was melting leaf. I pulled the plant out, separated the leaves and viola – first flower. I hope to report soon with another update !
