  Cryptocoryne Leaves - Books on Cryptocoryne
From: gschnu at gmail.com (Georg Gschnitzer) on 2008.03.23 at 09:36:08(17209)

the book from Christel Kasselmann is still available: Go to
www.ulmer-verlag.de and search (Suche) for Wasserpflanzen or Kasselmann

It is not exactly cheap (? 49,90), but they say it was translated into 6
languages. So one of them should be English, i think...

The book from Hendrik de Wit is also available there (? 29,90).

There is another book only on Cryptocoryne by Niels Jacobsen from 1979*,
*(112 pages*,* ISBN 3-87401-035-X, ca.? 12,00,* *Ed:* *Alfred Kernen
which ist still recomended by aquarium lovers. You can still find it on
www.amazon.de as a used book from private sellers.

As my aquaristic carreer ended in the 1990, I do not know these books,
but books from Eugen Ulmer Verlag are always from very high quality!

Best wishes from Austria

Georg and Others,

The Kasselmann book is available in English and I recommend it to anyone
interested in the wide array of aquatic plants and their cultivation.
There is a nice section on Cryptocoryne, as well as Anubias, and
Lagenandra. You can order it from any book store or from on-line places
like Barnes and Noble, Amazon, etc. If I remember correctly it cost me
about $75 US.
