Plant Description:

Cryptocoryne aponogetifolia  is part of the Cryptocoryne genus. These aquatic plants are native to slow, lowland forested river banks and streams of South-Eastern Asia.

In the aquarium, Cryptocorynes are sometimes referred to as Crypts or water trumpets. These plants do best when planted directly into the substrate. While water trumpets are very hardy aquarium plants that do well  in a variety of water conditions, these plants are sensitive to drastic changes in water chemistry. When first planted in a new aquarium, this plant may shed its leaves known as “crypt melt” as it adjusts to its new environment. This behavior is normal and can be predicted, once acclimatized to its new living conditions it will again flourish and grow.

Cryptocoryne aponogetifolia is one of the tallest cryptocorne species reaching almost a meter tall in the wild! This large plant is adored for its long and strong rippled leaves. This crypt is an easy to care for plant that requires low to medium light and moderate fertilization and CO2 supplementation for superb growth and coloration. Aponegetifolia is ideal for large or deep aquariums and is one of the few plants that can be kept with cichlid due to its strong leaf structure.

Although this plant may be a moderate grower in the aquarium, with more co2 and plant fertilizer it is possible to produce more growth and propagation over time.
