IMPORTANT: Our bunched and potted aquarium plants may vary in growth forms. Because of this, please understand how to properly transition and acclimate plant(s) into desired form(s). We do our best to thoroughly clean and inspect all plants prior to shipment but cannot guarantee lead bunch or potted plants to be free from snails and/or algae. Not your thing? Please consider purchasing tissue culture aquarium plants! 

Tissue culture plants are cultivated in sterile lab settings ensuring your plant is free from pests, snails and algae! These are young specimen that are grown in emersed forms. Gel should always be removed prior to planting.

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 or that die out of our care.

Cryptocoryne Balansae is a beautiful species of Cryptocoryne. This aquarium plant is characterized by its long, slender leaves that offer bold green hues depending on the environment in which it is planted. Like most Cryptocoryne species, Crypt Balansae does not prefer to be moved once planted. Doing so will potentially lead to Crypt melt so it is best to choose a spot decisively. This aquarium plant can grow quite large and tall, so it works best in the mid to background of a larger planted aquarium tank. Like all Crypts, Crypt Balansae is generally easy to maintain once established in a planted aquarium. This aquarium plant will enjoy and experience much better growth in a planted tank that is fully established with CO2 injection, quality planted aquarium soil and high-lighting.
