This highly uncommon crypt makes a beautiful dark tone for the mid-ground of an aquarium. C. fusca hails from the Kalimantan region of Indonesian Borneo and was popularized as an aquarium plant in the 1950s, but has been very rare up until recently. This plant can be kept in soft, acid or hard, alkaline but more acid is preferable. C. fusca dark green leaves with a puckered texture. When grown emersed it produces an impressive flower whose spathe is 4-8 inches long and grows in a striking pink spiral. All crypt plants hate changes in water parameters, and will undergo “crypt melt” if conditions vary too much. The leaves of the plant begin to rot and essentially melt away. If this process begins, you can cut away any rot and attempt to stabilize the water. It is normal for crypts to melt when introduced to a new tank and should produce new growth once they have acclimated.
