This is a smaller version of Cryptocoryne Beckettii, however it does grow relatively large leaves which reach around 10-15cm long. 

The leaves will display a dark olive-brown colour with violet underside.

As with most Crytocorynes, this plant is very easy to care for. It will do well in all lighting conditions and does not need co2 added.

Being root feeders, these plants will benefit more from root tabs than liquid fertiliser.

**Please note that due to new regulations, we cannot ship live plants to Northern Ireland. We will cancel and refund any orders containing live plants that are destined for Northern Ireland. (This only applies to live plants, other goods are not affected.)**

Cryptocorynes are susceptible to "Crypt melt".

This often happens soon after they're first planted. It may look as if the plant is dying but it is just adapting to its new environment. It will begin to consume nutrients from its existing leaves to produce new growth.

It's best to leave it alone until you see new leaves beginning to shoot from the bottom, at this stage you should carefully trim off the old leaves. Adding root tabs will help to speed the process along and will produce the best looking leaves.

Once planted it is best to avoid moving the plant and it can cause it to go through this stage all over again.

Healthy plants.

I bought four plants from VM Aquatics, they were very healthy when they arrived and they are doing very well, the snails love them ha ha, but saying that so do the shrimp.
I will be buying further plants and other products in future purchases from them.
