Common Name: Crypt Parva Nano/Mini

This is the miniature version of the already tiny Crypt Parva, which is considered one of the smallest variants of Cryptocorynes. It has green, grass-like leaves which can grow up to 4” tall, making it a suitable foreground plant. Like regular Crypt Parva, it has a very slow rate of growth and can require more light.     


  • 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.
