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.

Plants arrived in excellent condition. The original leaves were quite slender and light green. The underwater converted leaves are longer and a richer bronze colouration with more texture. Plants doing well and looking really good.
