You know all about Crypt Spiralis and if you don't check out Dustin's video on bulletproof plants.
Crypts are hearty plants that melt when moved but come back just as quick. They are almost impossible to kill and this one flourishes with a nice green arrowhead leaf.
This arrowhead Crypt called Crypt Ponderifolia will absolutely make your tank pop with obscurity!
Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Crypt Ponderifolia is a 2 (only because it might lose a few leaves after it transfers from our tank conditions to your)
Can handle super low lighting, grows faster in high light
Where to Plant:
Background in a smaller tank. Midground in a larger aquarium. Use it as a contrast next to a grassy plant.

When they arrived, after 5 days in shipment, they were almost white. I put them in the tank and the next day they got darker. The third day it dissolved into mush. I don’t know what I did wrong. The other plants I got seem to be doing well (so far).
Love these plants
Thank you for the extra plug. Unfortunately, the package did not arrive until five days after fulfillment. Kind of a long time for less than a two hour transport. I realize this out of your control. The attempted delivery was on a Saturday and the claim was the plant was closed. though the offices are closed, the delivery door is available. Since I don't work Mondays, I opened the package on Tuesday. Crypts don't always ship well, but I can see these were healthy plants at shipment time and I am confident I can rescue them by growing them emersed until they fill out again.
This is my I don't know how many orders 5-6 from Dustin's. The only time I was ever dissatisfied was with the Val I ordered. it
melted right away and that was it. D tells you straight up how Val acts, long story short, 3 months later guess who showed up better than ever, Val. My latest order of 4 plants arrived with 6 plants and a free heat pack to protect my plants. The crypts are growing ready after two days and the Javas I received ready had clones growing on them. You can save a few pennies with other companies, YOU WILL NEVER MATCH THE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND APPRECIATION YOU GET FROM DUSTIN'S. Drops mic, walks away.
