Cryptocoryne Nevelii UNS Tissue Culture
Common Name: Cryptocoryne Nevelii
Cryptocoryne Nevelii is native tropical plant native to Sri Lanka. The bright green leaves are long and slender, growing compact under ideal conditions. Crypts will thrive in moderate light and a nutrient rich substrate. Given time, these plants can transition to grown emmersed or immersed in water.
Like other crypts, this Cryptocoryne Nevelii is great for beginner hobbyists due to its ease in keeping and low care requirements. If grown in good aquarium substrate such as Ultum Nature System Controsoil, the plant can feed through the roots and grow quickly without the need for high light, CO2 or fertilizer dosing. However, the addition of CO2 and good lighting will result in healthier, more robust growth. Propagate by splitting the rhizome or cutting off new growth and replanting
- Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state of the art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants.
- They provide the best option for those who want to ensure that absolutely zero unwanted pests are introduced into the aquarium.
- Remove tissue culture gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.
- Cryptocoryne prefer not to be moved once planted. If possible, do not move them!
- Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
