Cryptocoryne bangkaensis 'Bangka Dwarf' Waser 01-1

Postby Ghazanfar Ghori » Thu Dec 18, 2008 7:41 am

I've been growing C. bangkaensis for about 18 months. I find it to be a fairly easy plant to grow under standard blackwater conditions. A few months ago, one of my plants started to send up a spathe - but unfortunately, while the spathe was still only a few millimeters long, it melted. The plant tried again two additional times, with similar results. I couldn't figure out why the spathe was not maturing. Guessing it was some kind of nutrient deficiency, I added a fertilizer tab to the pot, hoping that would do the trick. The next spathe developed normally, and it finally opened up yesterday. Here are a few pictures, maybe excessive pictures, but its a beautiful spathe and I couldn't help myself. Pictures don't do this spathe justice - the patterns, colors and textures are to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.
