Cryptocoryne beckettii originated in Sri Lanka and has often been found growing above and below water. When submerged the leaves are different varieties of greens and browns however different colouration within the same plant is common. Ideal for beginners as this plant is so easy to keep and grow. 

Helpful Tip - Try creating a captivating look by positioning in clumps of two and three.

Understanding Crypt melt - all Cryptocoryne species require stable water parameter and light conditions. Once planted, Crypts should not be moved otherwise it can trigger what is called Crypt melt. If a Crypt has a significant change of environment (ph, kh , gh, lighting intensity or duration, root disturbance etc), Crypt melt can be triggered. The leaves start to disintegrate as the plant prepares for its new environment - DO NOT WORRY! Your plant will begin to grow back over the next 30 days (sometimes sooner, sometimes later) - it's still very much alive and busy getting ready for the growth of new leaves. In the meantime, any decaying leaves should be trimmed and recycled in a compost bin.
