  Re: [Aroid-l] Fiction of bullate leaves

First post I think. I've been lurking on this list for a while watching for information on Bucephalandra plants, but this post caught my eye. Just to add to the discussion on bullate leaf form. My hobby centers on Aquatic Gardening and many plants in the
Genus Cryptocoryne have bullate leaves.

C. crispatula var. balansae https://crypts.home.xs4all.nl/Cryptocoryne/Gallery/bal/bal.html

C. hudoroi https://crypts.home.xs4all.nl/Cryptocoryne/Gallery/hud/hud.html

C. usteriana https://crypts.home.xs4all.nl/Cryptocoryne/Gallery/ust/ust.html

I may have missed a few species, but these are the ones I am familiar with. Some of these plants grow in fairly swiftly flowing water at times in the year while at other times they grow emersed during low water.
Some at least keep the bullated leaf form while growing emersed.
