  • This plant is grown in-vitro and is kept in a nutrient medium. Remove plant from cup and rinse roots and plant in aquarium water to remove medium. Seperate into portions and plant into substrate with aquascaping tweezers.

    Like many other Cryptocorynes it needs to acclimatize before growth starts in earnest. It is not very demanding, but appreciates a nutritious substrate and good light if you want to keep the maroon color.
