This Cryptocoryne is an excellent plant for the low-light, low-tech aquarium!
Cryptocoryne ciliata (Cryptocoryne ciliata) is a fairly large plant that occurs throughout much of Asia. It can grow to a substantial size, so it is an excellent plant for the medium to a large aquarium. It requires stable conditions, but it is one of the few freshwater aquarium plants that can also grow in brackish water.
Cryptocoryne ciliata is a slow-growing plant that requires moderate to high lighting. It should be placed in an area of the highest lighting. Due to its wide natural range, it can adapt to a relatively wide variety of water parameters as long as it does not have to endure sudden changes. Like most Cryptocoryne species, it should be allowed plenty of time to “settle in” and should not be moved constantly. Once established, it will reproduce by sending runners that grow into new plants.
CO2 supplementation is beneficial, but not necessary for this plant. It will also benefit from supplemental fertilizers and nutrient-rich substrate.
