    Can someone ID these? I'm thinking it is some kind of cryptocoryne. I took a few and it has been propogating by runners for a little while. imageimage

    Maybe some kind of echinodorus? Scratch the crypt. I don't think it is one.

    Was that plant grown emergent? It looks a lot like some crypt beckettii that I am growing but I'm not great with alot of the various crypt species.

    When I found it, the leaves were under shallow water so I don't think it was.

    Now that I Googled it... it really does look like emersed crypt beckettii. Could someone confirm this?

    Where was it found?

    My first glance suggested Potamogeton natans.

    Oh I didn't realize they were from the wild. That would rule out crypts if you are in the US.

    I live in BC Canada. It was found on the edge of the Fraser river.

    Had to look it up BC = British Columbia, but wow glad I did what an amazing part of the world almost beyond my imagination. You are so lucky to live there!

    You might find your plant here:

    It might be Potamogeton natans but you would have to be sure it has the right characteristics as there may be similar ones in your area.

    What a brilliant publication and what a wonderful idea to share it on the web.

    There are good illustrations, Potamogetonaceae start on Page 4-65.

    Isn't the internet fabulous? It was like the dark ages prior to its introduction.
