New plants, YAY!
Here are for new additions that I picked up yesterday. The store rep had no idea what they were so they were labelled as "plants".
I haven't decided where they are going nor have I split them up. I think I got good deals here as one was in with the $17 plants, tall leafy flowering affairs but it was very short. Rep one said that it was just a cutting from one of those that had not grown yet and was going to charge me full dollar for it.... I wasn't game and didn't think he was right. So I selected three others (they always do a buy three get four deal) and went looking around for number four. Rep one decided to pawn me off on rep two. Rep one seemed to know a few things but rep two was not knowledgeable at all. I brought him back to the plant in question and asked what he thought (this before I knew he knew nothing, probably a fish guy) and he didn't think it looked like the same thing and didn't know why it was in the expensive bin.... so whatever it was ended up being the freebie.
The first is probably an Aponogeton crispus.
The second is the freebie and looks VERY similar to the AC above but is a different plant.... although maybe just a different variety of the Aponogeton. The plants it was with were much different so I don't think that was any indication.
Number three is a crypt, apparently also a Wendtii, although it looks different enough to be a different variety that's what keeps coming up. Perhaps it has to do with the leaf shape and wavey edges... any thoughts?
Number four is, well, I'm not certain where to start. I think a crypt of one form or another. The bunches have already got a few leaders sprouting green.
All four had some decent root systems going on so they had been at the store some time, one of the crypts, shot three, was hiding in a tank all by itself. sometimes it pays to go looking in ALL of the tanks to see what forgotten well established plant may be there.
