Crypt Balansae

This hardy and undemanding plant is a mid-ground plant native to the shallow rivers of Thailand. Just like other Crypt species, this one requires stable water parameters and can't be moved all the time as the leaves will start to melt. It does not require CO2 injection but benefits from it as well as liquid fertilizers. This plant has big, elongated and wavy leaves with green/brownish coloration.
When pruned every so often it will grow more like a bush instead of tall and high, which is more appealing to some.
Quite common in the aquarium hobby and great for beginners.
It will propagate quickly by sending runners once settled in its new environment.

The best plants

I have ordered many times over the years from Dustin and Buce. Francisco has the best plants I have ever gotten. Perfect every time. The tanks that his plants are in are thriving. In the 5 years in the hobby, I actually have tanks I’m really proud of. I will never win an award for aquascaping, but it’s not about that for me. Francisco helped me pick out the best plants for my lighting so that they would do well.

Now I’m a customer for life. Hope to get some snails from him in the future, and more plants.
