Crypt Mioya is a less common type of crypt that can serve as an ideal foreground or midground plant.  The slender leaves have ruffled edges and can range from bright green to copper brown which adds some colorful contrast to the usual green foliage.

If grown in good aquarium substrate such as Controsoil, the plant can feed through the roots and grow quickly without the need for high light, CO2 or fertilizer dosing.

Crypts can be grown emersed or submerged.  Propagate by splitting the rhizome or cutting off new growth and replanting

Notes:

  • If received in a pot, please remove all rock wool from the roots. Where possible we try and ship without pots or rockwool. Due to them being non-biodegradable we prefer to propagate in an environmentally conscious way.
  • CO2 will generally yield better growth rates.
  • Stable water conditions are a must, changes should occur over a period of time in order to reduce chances of melting etc.
