Cryptocoryne Lucens 

Cryptocoryne Lucens, also known as C. Willisii or C. Nevillii, originates from Sri Lanka. This small aquarium plant will grow no more than two inches high in the aquarium. It produces slender leaves in various shades of green.

Care & Maintenance for Cryptocoryne Lucens

The plant's small size makes it ideal for the foreground area in your tank. If provided with good conditions, and once established, Cryptocoryne Lucens will begin spreading across an open area in the aquarium. This plant is easy, adaptable and easy to grow if provided with stable conditions.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 68-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground

Cryptocoryne Lucens is sometime confused with a similarly small Cryptocoryne Parva. The plant looks best if planted in small groups around rocks, driftwood and other aquarium decorations. It will appreciate good substrate and moderate level of light.

Cryptocoryne Lucens is also available potted. Other Cryptocoryne varieties are also available, including Parva, Beckettii, Wendtii, and more.

    The plant arrived in great shape! I was very pleased to see how healthy the plant was. After soaking it in room temperature for over 24 hours, I planted it in my aquarium. I hope it likes it’s new home.

    I was blown away by the roots on these 2 plants that I received. They’re gorgeous & we’re so easy to bury! It’s been a few days & they’re still beautiful.
