Crypt Spiralis is one of hardier species of Crypts that I have just recently started keeping. Crypt Spiralis has thicker leaves and grows taller. It also has a tendency to shoot off runners all over other parts of your tank. Crypt Spiralis makes a great background plant. The thing that shocks me about Crypt Spiralis is how when we got it in, it didn't melt like most crypts. NOTE: That doesn't mean it won't melt in your tank, but it will grow back. If you have never kept a Crypt before, you should start with Crypt Spiralis....great hardy Crypt!
Care Scale of 1-10:
1.5 The .5 is only because it might melt back if what we are selling has not fully converted to underwater growth... (grows better in good substrate BUT can plant in plain gravel)
1.0 If it is a small plug like in the second picture which means we've been growing it submerged for a month or two :)
Grows fine in low light. Will send off runners faster if it is under higher light.
Where to Plant:
Back ground or mid ground if it is a really tall tank.
TRY THIS PLANT IF YOU WANT THE EASIEST CRYPTS I SELL..
Pairs well with Anubias..
I added the crypto immediately to my new tank. The tank is new with no fish. Going to give it a month to grow in my dirted tank. Looked very healthy when I opened the package.
I ordered a lot of plants they arrived fast. Plants all look great very healthy. Very good quality.
I planted mine about a week ago. Very healthy. No melting at all! My fish like swimming around them too. Every plant is great. Thanks again!
I wanted a background plant to replace my aponogeton ulvaceus and this was recommended to me. it suits my tank perfectly and im looking forward to seeing it grow in.
no pests or melting.
