Cryptocoryne parva

Cryptocoryne Parva

Cryptocoryne parva is the smallest of all Cryptocoryne. It is one of the few species that does not significantly change its leaf shape and colour depending on cultivation conditions. It needs more light than most other Cryptocoryne because it almost loses its leaf blade under water. So it must never be overshadowed by other plants. Individual plants should be planted a few centimetres apart, and after about six months they will form a cohesive low group of plants. Recommended for foreground planting.
