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

RE: Cyptanthus

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


RE: Cyptanthus

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.
