Request for Plant ID
I recently purchased a plant labelled by the lfs as Crypt.
retrospiralis. It is growing well in my tank, has about 8 new leaves
in the past 2 weeks, quite a handsome plant. Today I was
browsing at another lfs and came across some plants labelled as
Apon. crispus. They looked exactly like my plant! So I'm
wondering which one I really have. Here's the thing that really
makes me question: the leaves are translucent. I didn't know that
crypts have that sort of leaf, but I believe it occurs in Apons. I've
never grown either species before, so can't compare. Here is a
description of the plant I have:
Rosette of 1" stems, leaves about 1/2" wide, 8" long, new leaves
translucent maroon color with green veins, older leaves light green.
Heavily crenelated edges.
Anyone care to ID this plant?
