I can't find much info on these nice little plants,I have 6 of then and find there easy to care for and would like to get more, but before I spend any more money I would like to know about them and there growing habits and what special care do they need if any, mine sit out side all summer in bright light but not in the full sun and seem to do good,I've never seen one bloom yet.

Thanks for any and all help I can get.

Here's a little info page put together by the Cryptanthus Society (see link). You can see plenty of pictures of Crypts on the FCBS photo index.

Here is a link that might be useful: Cryptanthus Culture Guide

lisac1v, thanks for the link on Crypt, I guess I've been doing every the right thing all along, and after looking at some of the pic. I'm going to start looking for more.
Thanks again

They are very easy to care just put a good medium and add water 1 or 2 times a week. If you want to visit:, there you will find more information and you will see many pictures of the variety and hybrids exist.
