Cryptocoryne Nevillii is a classic aquarium plant in the Cryptocoryne family that has been commonly mistaken for Cryptocoryne Willisii variant. In addition, to add to the confusion, earlier discovery of this particular plant led to the original Willisii plant to be also identified as Nevilli. However, Cryptocoryne Nevilli is a completely different Crypt altogether. On the smaller side, Cryptocoryne Nevillii grows slightly faster and larger than the smaller Parva variant and features longer leaves that, with the correct care, will offer a green hue with a brown undertone. While Cryptocoryne Willisii looks similar to Lucens, true Nevillii foliage stays shorter and will grow ovulate leaves that will fan out more like Parva!

Like most Cryptocoryne species, Cryptocoryne Nevillii does not prefer to be disturbed and care should be taken when deciding placement to ensure it is not moved in the foreseeable future as Crypt melt is a known phrase for good reason! Moderate, quality aquarium LED lighting is preferred along with CO2 injection and a nutrient-dense aquarium soil for good growth and the aquarium should be established if possible before adding Cryptocoryne Usteriana as a newly set up tank can also lead to the melt of this aquarium plant. Propagation is simple and can be done by gently separating and replanting new growth into quality aquarium soil intended for aquatic plant propagation and growth.
