Laganandra is part of the Cryptocorynes family, but differs itself by the more robust growth and shape. The meeboldii has beautiful russet red brownish leaves up to 30cm long. The plant can be used as a solitary plant, it grows slowly and requires less light. Because of the slow growth it is also suitable for smaller tanks and nano aquariums.
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.
