Cryptocoryne Ferruginea Sekadauensis UNS Tissue Culture
Common Name: Cryptocoryne Ferruginea Sekadauensis
Cryptocoryne Ferruginea Sekadauensis is a Cryptocoryne species that originates from Indonesia. With limited information available, this aquatic plant produces narrow leaves that vary in shades of green and brown. Like other Cryptocoryne, C. Ferruginea Sekadauensis is a good choice for the midground area of a planted tank.
It can be assumed that Crypt. Ferruginea Sekadauensis is generally hardy once established, but can experience some melt in the beginning stages or when introduced to new environments. For the best results, we recommend planting Crypt Ferruginea Sekadauensis in an established aquarium to improve success rates. Quality substrate and nutrients, paired with CO2 injection and low to medium lighting will help with overall growth and health.
