Cryptocoryne mix is a Cryptocoryne which we will choose for you (so not always like te picture). That means if you buy a few of these, they may all be different (no guarantee though). Either way it's no set species of cryptocoryne, so like a lucky dip!
Ideal for beginners as this plant is so easy to keep and grow. 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.
