Description

Originating from Malaysia the Cryptocoryne bullosa is a bushy and compact aquarium plant that has attractive broad green leaves with unusual veins throughout and sturdy stems. We recommend that you position in clumps of two and three for maximum effect. These plants look highly attractive when placed amongst wood and rocks due to the different shapes and textures.

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.

Beautiful and surprisingly quickly growing crypt. Good sized specimens

Received in excellent condition. As predicted there was leaf melt as the plant converted to being submersed. The new growth is more textured and a bronze/dark green colour. Doing well and looking great in my tank.

When you say it's difficult to grow, what do you mean? Is it feed, co2 or light that makes it difficult?

 
Staff

It's not tricky - I've revised the text :)


 
Guest
it says in the description this is difficult to grow, will it definitely not need CO2, and will it be ok living on liquid fertiliser in a 30L tank?

 
Staff

It's not tricky really - in fact most crypts are the same I.e. fairly easy and do not need co2 to survive. So it will be fine in your tank :)
