Cryptocoryne or commonly known as Crypts are a great plant for midground and background (excluding a few species) in most aquariums. They prefer to be in lower light conditions and do respond to co2 injection; although it’s not needed.

Cryptocoryne tend to like more matured aquariums – we recommend an aquarium to be established for at least 3 months. They enjoy stable conditions; whereas drastic changes in the water parameters can trigger a crypt melt.

Crypt Melt

Crypt Melt is a known issue when introducing Cryptocoryne to your aquarium. Some studies say it’s caused from too high of nitrates and others say it’s triggered by the change from emersed to submersed conditions.

Cryptocoryne Propagation

Cryptocoryne can easily be propagated for exponential growth. With only splitting a portion of a living node with the roots to grow a new plantlet. Having said that, it could take several months for this new plantlet to be fully grown. Best recommendation is to split the cryptocoryne in smaller portions and plant them a few inches from each other.
