A time-tested robust small to medium-sized crypt with narrow lanceolate medium green leaves. It has a dense bushy growth habit or forms higher lawn-like groups. C. x willisii “lucens” looks rather similar to Cryptocoryne parva but grows much higher and faster. In earlier decades, it was known under the name Cryptocoryne lucens. It differs from Cryptocoryne x willisii “nevillii”, which is as robust, as its leaves are of a more longish form and grow higher than those of the latter when cultivated submersed.
- 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.
