Red Cryptocoryne Pygmaea is a NEW Crypt to us! Grab yourself some of this FIRE Crypt while we have it in stock!

This is a fun crypt for us. We don't carry a whole ton of Crypts, and the ones we do are typically green. Not these babies.  Say hello to Crypt Pygmaea.

Although like all crypts- they might melt back- these are NOT A DEMANDING plant at all.  These crypts can handle lower light levels and we keep them in the shady parts of the greenhouse.   This is a LOW LIGHT PLANT.

Generally speaking we like to kept plants in a good, nutrient rich substrate...however we have been told crypts do alright in just plain gravel or sand.  Yet another win for this crypt.

This is foreground or mid ground plant. I would recommend more of the mid- ground as it is a medium height. I think a darker contrasting plant looks better in the midground as it gives your tank more depth front to back.

If you are familiar with the classic "Crypt Wendtii" these are very similar.

On a scale of 1-10.  1 being you can grow them in your toilet- These are a 3.  The only reason for the 3 is that they might melt back while establishing their leaves to your aquarium conditions.

Crypt Pygmaea

I bought two of these Crypts and 7 days later I've got new growth with no melt. The plants are small, but have a pretty red color, excited to see them grow! This was my first buy from Dustin's, and I am very pleased. Thank you!

Nice plant

Arrived with one dead leaf, but I plucked it. The plant is a little smaller than expected but I'm sure it will grow to be a beautiful plant.

Crypt in the cript

I was a bit disappointed in the crypt. It came in quite small. I planted it anyway and we'll see how it hangs on. I just planted it in the tank so, it has a ways to go before I can really rate it fairly.
