Cryptocoryne beckettii – first spathe

I bought this crypt one year ago from Dennerle. It grew really huge (as you can see here). Finally, I found its first spathe. To be honest I nearly missed it, because my “crypt dome” was located in my old flat where I don´t go so often.

So, here it is. Colours are a bit pale and the limb is much more twisted than on Jan´s Crypt pages, but I think we have got winner.

Sorry for poor quality:

Update Sept-20-2012: I missed a spathe of my C. beckettii (it already felt apart).
