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 Pontederiifolia is a lesser known species, but still often kept by planted aquarium tank enthusiasts. Like other Cryptocoryne species, Cryptocoryne Ponterderiifolia doesn't prefer to be moved around but is hardy once it is established within a planted tank. Cryptocoryne Pontederiifolia features long stems with arrow-shaped foliage. Coloration can vary depending upon the condition the aquatic plant is kept under, but will generally hover around varying shades of olive green with slight shimmers when kept under strong lighting. Cryptocoryne Pontederiifolia is a medium-sized cryptocoryne and does best when planted in groups in the midground or background of an aquarium tank.
