"In the limestone areas in Pahang grows C. nurii
, together with C. affinis
. This amazing species keeps it's spathe floating on a elongated peduncle. The famous "yellow C.nurii
" is also found again in that area and belongs to the subspecies raubensis
. These plants are easy to grow." - Jan Bastemeijer
"During the last 10 years a somewhat odd looking Cryptocoryne from the
vicinity north of Raub, Pahang, Peninsular Malaysia, has attracted attention.
The first collection from 1970 passed on unnoticed. The second from 1985
was puzzling with a yellow spathe limb and its identity was not clarified, but
was a continuous reminder of an unsolved problem. It was only after
collections (with red-black spathe limbs) from 2002 and 2007 came into
cultivation that the pattern became more evident, and after the recent
collections from 2011, the interpretation became clear, that we were dealing
with a special long peduncled aquatic limestone plant which is here referred
to as a variety of Cryptocoryne nurii
Furtado (Furtado, 1935)."
