 Plant Description:

Cryptocoryne spiralis is part of the Cryptocoryne genus. These aquatic plants are native to slow, lowland forested riverbanks 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.

Spiralis is highly sought after in the aquarium hobby. It is a taller plant that is adored because of its thin, reddish-brown to green leaves. This crypt is a moderately easy to care for plant that requires medium to high light and moderate fertilization and CO2 supplementation for superb growth and coloration. Spiralis is ideal for small to large planted aquariums and aquascapes.

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.
