Cryptocoryne Pontederiifolia originates from Sumatra, Borneo. This plant exhibits bold leaf shapes that give it an impactful appearance in the aquarium. Once established, this undemanding plant is hardy and will grow well in most water conditions. Moderate lighting is sufficient and, with good substrate or fertilization, the plant will grow rather fast.
I’m in love watching this grow. And seeing my beta nestle in fir a nap. Shipping and delivery were flawless.
I love the look of this crypt. I ordered 3 types of crypts and these were my favorite. The 2 medium size plants were very healthy, having been pruned to size. Came with thick runner roots propagating new shoots, many leaves per plant, and I really like the leaf shape on this variety. The toughest part was fitting the large roots into my already crowded tank. I didn't see any melt on these after planting - in fact the opposite - almost immediate new growth.
