    I've been trying to lay my hands on this forever. C. aponogetifolia. Anybody have any leads on this?

    Tom, I asked about this over a year ago and you said you knew someone with a pond full of it in Florida. Were you ever able to contact them about getting some?:)

    thanks,

    -Russ

    Yea, Bob Olson's buddy has it.
    Many of the folks in Singapore sell it.

    It comes in every so often.
    It gets huge BTW.
    3ft

    Tom,

    I should probably know who Bob Olson is, but I don't. I did a search in the members directory to no avail. Can you give me a pointer in the right direction and I'll see if I can get a treasure map to the lost pond of C. aponogetifolia? :)


    Andy,

    You're probably thinking of the genus, "Aponogeton," not the species Cryptocoryne aponogetifolia, which is in a different genus.

    It was Andy's post I was referring to, not Tom's. Tom is always right.:D

    Except when he is wrong, which is more than many know.
    You wonder why I know what I know?
    Lots of times being wrong:p
    Trying it and going "dang!"
    Back to the drawing board............ho hum..........
    But it's like anything, Mt biking a particularly technical trail without putting the foot down and breaking one's neck, arranging the rocks just right after 40 attempts, never happy with a scape, spending 3 years trying to get rid of BBA.

    I do not think Bob is really into the hobby anymore BTW.

    Vendors from SG often sell it as mentioned.
    It's a big giant weed. Try C. usteriana instead.

    I'd grow it and as it made a new runner, I'd sell the giant mother plant and start again.

    Regards,
    Tom Barr

    thanks.
