Description

The Cryptocoryne costata is a handsome looking aquatic plant ideal for both beginners and expert plant keepers. With shapely and dainty leaves attached to long thin stems you will be pleased with the look of these little crypts.

Position in the foreground of the planted tank for maximum effect. These little gems look fantastic dotted about in clusters of threes and fours.

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.
