I don't even remember when this was planted but they've been spreading a bit and I'm going to move a couple of them to my 40b. I believe they're a crypt species and my best guess is that they might be either Crypt beckettii ''petchii' or Crypt Walkeri Lutea, or maybe something else I haven't found yet.

Anybody have any ideas about an ID for this plant? Does anybody have this species and know what it is for sure?

I have no idea but it is lovely! I love the light green color and shape of the leaves. Hopefully someone will know the answer as it is a plant I would like to find for my tank.

That looks like some type of sword, Sue, from the veins in the leaves. Possibly a melon sword?

Looks more like option 2; the Crypt Walkeri Lutea.

BTW it is gorgeous and if you ever have some to toss-toss it in the mail for me!

Agree! I was going to say the exact same thing.

Me too! Very pretty plant, Sue.

Do the leaves have two extra veins running along them, like these?

I know it's not a sword as I wouldn't plant that in the front of a 20g long and the way it's started to pop up in a couple of places is more like a crypt would populate.

I've never heard of cryptocoryne noritoi wongso, so pretty sure it's not that one and it doesn't have as many veins. But from that link you posted, I like that one a lot. May have to look around for one.

Crypt pontederiifolia?
