IMPORTANT: Tissue culture aquarium plants are grown in laboratory settings that specialize in aquatic plant propagation. Tissue culture plants contain young specimen that are grown in emersed forms. With this in mind, please understand how to properly transition and acclimate plant(s) into desired form(s). When done correctly, plant melt is minimal. We cannot issue refunds for tissue culture plants that arrive healthy and die out of our care.

LIVE PLANTS ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO STRESS AND DAMAGE FROM TRANSIT - This may appear in the form of minimal melt, leaf loss, cosmetic damage, etc. Refunds or replacements will not be issued for plants with viable root systems.

Remove tissue culture gel and clean gently before planting in the aquarium.

Cryptocoryne Parva is considered one of the smallest variations within the Cryptocoryne family and has grown in popularity over the years. This small aquarium plant offers bright green color tones and a low-growing profile that makes it a perfect choice for both a carpeting aquarium plant or as an accent in the midground of a planted aquarium. If chosen for a foreground plant, patience and time will be necessary as Crypt Parva Mini is known for its slow growth rate. Unlike other Cryptocoryne, Crypt Parva Mini seldom changes drastically in shape or form and will produce consistent growth across most aquarium conditions.  

Like other Cryptocoryne, this small crypt plant does not prefer to be moved and should be allowed to establish a strong root system before being uprooted or moved. Nutrient-dense aquarium soil, CO2 injection and a clean environment will help boost healthy growth. To propagate, simply cut off new plantlets growing from the mother rhizome.
