Cryptocoryne Parva Mini Tissue Culture Bag
Common Name: Crypt Parva Mini, Cryptocoryne Sp. Parva Mini
Crypt Parva Mini is one of the smallest species of Crypts that has grown in popularity in the community over the years. This aquarium plant has green, grass-like leaves that around 3" tall, making it a formidable choice for both the foreground and midground plant choice in the planted aquarium. When compared to other popular Cryptocoryne species, Crypt Parva Mini grows very slowly and will require time and patience to achieve good coverage.
Parva Mini is generally hardy once established, but can experience some melt in the beginning stages or when introduced to new environments. Even so, this aquatic plant can be a great choice for beginner hobbyists who have some experience keeping aquatic plants and are ready to try new species. For the best results, we recommend planting Crypt Parva Mini in an established aquarium. Quality substrate and nutrients, paired with CO2 injection and low to medium lighting will help with overall growth and health.
