Cryptocoryne Beckettii 

Cryptocoryne Beckettii originates from Sri Lanka. This plant produces large and interesting olive-green leaves that will contrast well with other plants. The leaves and stems have a solid appearance and will provide hiding places for small and bottom-dwelling fish.

Care & Maintenance

Cryptocoryne Beckettii will do well even in low-light tanks and appreciates good substrate. Like other Cryptocorynes, Beckettii will need time to acclimatize to new aquarium conditions. But once they settle, Cryptocorynes are relatively hardy plants if provided with stable conditions.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 72-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground, Midground

Once established, Cryptocoryne Beckettii will be thick and bushy and will produce adventitious plantlets. It looks best when planted in groups, creating thickets in the foreground or midground of the aquarium.

    Very good size and excellent root system on these crypts. I would recommend to anyone looking for a good mid to background plant.

    I ordered the small 4 inch size. Plant had 4 leaves on 4 very long stems and also had a really big root system. Much more olive-almost brown in color compared to the photo
