    I bought this crypt(?) just over 2 months ago, I'd estimate, with its leaves only around 7cm at most. It's been going nuts in this tank with its leaves now reaching the 40cm mark. Will be looking to move it to a bigger tank sometime. I've just recently noticed, over the past day or so, that it's shot off this long runner type stork which seems to have a flower at the end. Basically just wanting to share what i have, but also wanting to find out if anyone knows what species of plant this is?

    Thanks. Brad

    Think it is an Aponogeton.

    No Cory no glory

    I think you're correct, doubledoutch. Just looked up a few pics of what you mentioned and it seems to be an Aponogeton undulatus :D can't wait until the flower opens fully, thanks a tonne for the help:thumbup:
