Cryptocoryne Parva (short crypt)
Cryptocoryne Parva is one of the easiest foreground plants you can find. It grows quick. Comes back from conversion to Submerged growth well. It's extremely hardy and easy. I would say it's as bulletproof as Crypt Spiralis. The Growth rate on this plant is fast and it will propagate for you in no time. Grab these while we have them.
As of 9.28.20 This plant has been above water grown... it will melt back on you a bit. We have put them underwater, so if you are reading this after 9.28 ...we have started the underwater conversion process. We like to disclose all of this unlike other places :)
A great Foreground Alternative to Dwarf Sag!
We also have a short Lilaeopsis brasiliensis (Micro Sword) that would be comparable and a faster grower than this if you are going for a carpet
Plants were in excellent shape when they arrived. I'm sure they'll melt some...crypts most always do...however these were in better shape than most. Thanks so much!
Plants I received were large and never converted, eventually melted down to nubs. Was given a partial refund though.
A couple leaves completely melted within first couple days but already had smaller leaves emerging at the base. (Not too surprised from what I’ve read about crypts) Other portions are doing fine.
This stuff is growing so well once it adjusted to its new lighting parameters
I bought the crypt quite some time ago. I have a low tech tank and the plant has been growing well. The plant came in healthy. I have ordered some plants from others where the plants were limp. Definitely a good buy.
