Common Name: Crypt Hudoroi
Cryptocoryne Hudoroi is an uncommon crypt that makes a dramatic mid-ground accent. This stem plant produces wide, oblong, dark or bright green leaves with a unique puckered or ruffled texture that stands out beautifully against hardscape material. C. hudoroi plants thrive in an environment that is rich with nitrate, phosphate, iron, CO2 and calcium. Calcium supplement is highly recommended, as this species hails from Borneo where it inhabits limestone-bed rivers and streams with very high calcium content.
Cryptocoryne Hudoroi plants need moderate to high lighting. Lighting of at least 2-3 watts/gallon is needed to achieve the attractive puckering or ruffled effect of the plant’s leaves. This plant is much easier to grow submersed, but can also grow emersed. Mature plants with high light can potentially produce flowers when grown emersed. 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.
Cryptocoryne Hudoroi propagates through runners which can be cut and replanted into the substrate.
