Plant Description:

Cryptocoryne sp. 'Pink Panther' 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.

Pink Panther also known as Pink Flamingo is a rare, small and compact plant that is adored because of its highly sought after pink leaves. This species requires more advanced care than most crypts; to exhibit its renown pink colors. High light, co2, and plant nutrients are required for best health and coloration. Pink Panther is ideal for experienced aquarists and high-tech planted aquarium set ups.

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