Type: Cryptocoryne Balansae
Growth Rate: Medium
Propagation: Plant sends out juvenile plants next to it along the substrate.
Additional Information: Give this plant a root ball/tab as this plant is a heavy root feeder. Seachem Tabs and API Tabs are both good brands. Also if it melts away leave it as it will grow back. It is likely to disappear for a couple of weeks and reappear. This is normal for Cryptocoryne plants and is to be expected. The new growth is always much nicer. Bare in mind these plants do not like to be moved around and will melt each time they are moved. Find a spot and leave it there for best results and you will eventually end up with multiple plants of the same sort surrounding it. This can take some time however.
This is my favourite looking crypt in NZ
