Originating from Sri Lanka the Cryptocoryne legroi is a slow growing vibrant plant which produces leaves of a matt bronze colour with an added tint of green. This plant requires little attention and will flourish with good nutrients. Too much lighting will stump the growth so don't be afraid to keep it a little darker.
This Crypt will look beautiful amongst rocks and wood, adding that bit of variety to your tank.
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.
