Cryptocoryne Parva

Cryptocoryne Parva, also known as Tiny Cryptocoryne, originates from Sri Lanka. It is a very attractive plant that produces slender leaves. The leaves are light green and provide a great place for fish to hide and play.

Maintenance & Care for Cryptocoryne Parva

The balansae plant is ideal for the foreground of your tank, as it can grow up to 2” tall in the aquarium (slightly taller under intense light) when kept in good conditions.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 75-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground

Under good conditions, this plant will create lawn-like effect in the aquarium. C. Parva will appreciate god substrate and lighting. Having good substrate is recommended. If desired, you may always provide additional fertilization and supplements boost quite easily by adding either liquid fertilizers or root tabs. Once established, the plant will spread through runners rather quickly.

    Received 3 C. Parva plants, part of a multiplant order.They look strong and healthy with good root system. Two continue to look great, the 3rd has lost all of its leaves, but may recover as Cryps sometimes do this. Other plants I have ordered have been of excellent quality.

    Came in looking good, but after 5 days, a couple are melting back ever so slightly. I have no doubt they will bounce back.

    Good, but small

    The plants came in excellent condition, but I was slightly expecting more with the 2 plants. Each had two to three leaves on it.

    This was a set of 2 plants but I got 3 since one had a whole other shoot I was able to separate and plant. All of them are growing very well.

    Small plants - Good condition
    Posted by Michael Solano on 27 Apr 2020

    I ordered 2 sets of 2 plants and received 4 healthy little specimens which all combined, were smaller than the clump pictured. There were ~4 leaves per plant. A couple yellowing leaves melted after planting but the majority are fine.
