Cryptocoryne crispatula var. balansae in 1-2-Grow! (tissue culture) cup.

Cryptocoryne crispatula var. balansae is from Southern Thailand where there are limestone mountains, and the water can be very hard. Like many other Cryptocorynes it needs to acclimatise before growth starts in earnest. Leaves becomes 20-60 cm long and the single roset plant becomes 15-20 cm wide.

Occasionally you may experience crypt melt. This is very common where the plant leaves dissolve to make way for new one's. Less likely to happen with Tissue Cultured plants but just bear that in mind and don't panic! It may take a few weeks before you see new growth but it will happen.

  1. Carefully take the plant out of the cup and rinse off the growing media under the tap. 
  2. Split the plant in 6-8 portions using sharp scissors. 
  3. Plant portions into the substrate using tweezers. Then watch them grow!

My first experience of tissue cultured material. Quite stunning how quickly they have taken shape and grown into nice looking plants.
