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.

Plants growing great

These came tiny. Only 3 leaves on each ordered and I doubt they will last or grow before the fish destroy them. Very underwhelming.

How high does it grow to


About 15cm

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


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

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?


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 :)


Hello, could you please tell me if this plant will thrive under medium light


Yes it will be fine
