Originating from Sumatra the Cryptocoryne moehlmannii is almost identical to the Cryptocoryne ponterderifolia with trim brown stems and neatly shaped green leaves this plant is a popular choice with planted aquarium enthusiasts. This is a fine-looking compact plant that is easy to keep and grow.

Ideally position in the aquarium around pebbles, rocks or stones to create a perfect looking aquarium.

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.

This is a great looking plant with very low maintenance requirements. Within days it had started putting out new leaves and has continued to grow in my low tech planted tank.

Healthy plant,I've used it for a nano tank with liquid carbon and fertiliser, aquael LED light, growing well with no melting at all. Recommend, as ideal for low tech tanks
