Cryptocoryne Lucens is a unique Cryptocoryne variation that is typically seen in the midground area of a planted aquarium. This particular species produces slender foliage that retains a rich light green hue throughout. Its leaf shape works particularly well when replicating tufts or thicker bushes of grassy bushes in the midground area of the aquarium or where additional texture is necessary. Like other Crypt species, Crypt Lucens is relatively undemanding and suitable for beginner to intermediate aquarists that have experience growing Cryptocoryne plants. We recommend using this aquatic plant in tanks that have a mature cycle and allowing the plant to establish a healthy root system before attempting to propagate or relocate.

Cryptocoryne are heavy root feeders and should be supplied with a nutrient-dense aqua soil. CO2 injection and good maintenance habits will go a long way for improved health and robust growth. Once ready, Crypt Lucens can be propagated by gently separating plantlets from the mother rosette.
