I know a number of crypt enthusiasts follow this blog, so I figured it’d be easiest to post my request right here. If you go out and visit wild populations of crypts and come across seed pods that are mature, I would really appreciate it if you could collect them for me. It’s legal to mail small lots of seeds to the US without going through a phytosanitary process. I do have an import permit that allows me to receive that material.
My success with C. nurii micropropagation with explants established from seeds has been very successful. Getting seeds might be the easiest way to obtain some new cryptocoryne and propagate them out to share with other hobbyists.
I really would appreciate it if you could collect seeds and send them to me.
