These crypt flowers are strangely beautiful.

Sean, is that the Alexi hybrid?
If so, may I buy a plantlet or trade the pink vein for one?

I lost mine when I moved to Florida and got one from alexi personally.
Which brings up another point, has anyone heard from Alexi recently?

Regards,
Tom Barr

Jan pulled this one out of his collection and insisted that I take it home last October, he said it would do wonderfully in my tanks. Alexi did not attend the meetings so I did not meet him(?). It hasn't put out a runner yet, that I have noticed. Did it ever send out a runner for you? It almost has a rhizome like an Anubius.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

If you've got bait, I've got wasabi!

That IS an aquascape, it's titled THE VACANT LOT.

It looks like the same plant, I'll ask Jan. I'm almost positive that it's the same cross Alexi did some years ago, I guess about 8 years?

It's a nice plant, I have several older pics:
