Cryptocoryne Nevillii

Common Name: Cryptocoryne Nevillii

This species is not normally cultivated in aquariums and comes from the highlands of Sri Lanka. It doesn’t grow much in the first month of planting, but after about 30 days it will start to grow many runners, which will form a compact group. It will reach a maximum height of about 7.8” and is best used in the foreground of a fish tank. The plant is best grown in a fine gravel substrate. It is propagated through simply separating the mature plants (i.e. when they’ve grown their own roots) from the runners, and replanting these offspring elsewhere. Overall, it is a simple looking but elegant plant, even if not much is known for sure about its wild genealogy. Considering that it is unusual in the aquarium hobby, it is sure to stand out.

  • 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.
  • Please be sure to remove this plant from its pot. Remove the cotton surrounding the roots and plant into a quality substrate. For instructions on how to properly plant "potted" aquarium plants, click here.
  • CO2 injection and quality aquarium soil will yield better growth.
  • Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
