This beautiful plant from the Cryptocoryne spp. from Sri Lanka has been a staple in the aquatic plant hobby for years.
The easy culture of this plant illustrates the typical behavior of a Cryptocoryne from Sri Lanka. It is diverse in its tolerances of both water quality and hardness. Light, though appreciated in quantity, seems to play only a nominal role in its maintenance. The rosettes, after taking root, can spread comparatively quickly and will soon form thick colonies in the aquarium. If the substrate is rich, growth will probably be a bit more rapid. Heavy fertilization and CO2 supplementation are appreciated by this species but are not necessary to achieve ample growth.
Most of the Cryptocoryne spp. from Sri Lanka are most suitable for midground planting.
