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!
Will come in grown underwater vs. above water growth! *Picture shows above water*
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 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.
Packaging is always great. Plants arrived healthy.
This one melted back a little but is now showing growth and looking healthy.
Would absolutely order again.
This is a cute plant that I like to place next to the wood or in corners.
Got these, they were beautiful, they are a little smaller than I thought, but they will grow … And I ordered 2 got an extra little one very pleased
