Re: Crypts

Dear Paul,
I got some crypts sold as potted plants at That Fish Place in Lancaster, Pa. 
They melted when I got them and I left them alone and they fully recovered. 
They stay low and some leaves do touch the ground. I think it is a variety 
of wendtii but i don't know which one. Alos, crypts will spread out and stay 
low it they have plenty of room. If they are are planted too close ther grow 
tall and thin. Hope this helps.

Subject: Crypt as a Foreground Plant?
Is there a Crypt that will work as a foreground plant? The Tropica site has
one they call Crytptocorne wendtii "Triopica" which they say "When grown
in an open space the leaves will virtually lie on the bottom." Has anyone
tired this variety? Would anyone know of a mailorder source for these in
the US or of a similar Crypt with these characteristics?
Thanks a lot,
Paul Mouritsen
