This hardy and undemanding plant is a mid-ground plant native to the shallow rivers of Borneo. 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. This crypt variety does better with CO2 injection and benefits greatly from liquid fertilizers. This plant has medium, elongated-pointy leaves that are light pink in coloration.
When pruned every so often it will grow more like a bush instead of tall and high, which is more appealing.
It will propagate quickly by sending runners once settled in its new environment.
