The smallest Cryprocoryne growing to a maximum of 5cm tall. With its thin, narrow, grass green leaves and slow growth it makes for an excellent plant for small aquariums. In contrast to many other Cryptocoryne this variety will grow much better with more light.

May suffer “crypt melt” when acclimating to different water parameters but will rebound. As a result try not to move the plant once settled.

Can be propagated by either splitting the rhizome or cutting and replanting the runners.


  • 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.
