Cryptocoryne Striolata is a rare species of Cryptocoryne. It can be characterized by its unique leaves that display a dimpled surface with colors ranging from deep green to purple hues. Like most Cryptocoryne species, C. Striolata does not prefer to be disturbed and should be allowed to establish a healthy root system before attempting to propagate or relocate the mother plant. It can be quite finicky and is recommended for aquarium hobbyists who have experience growing Cryptocoryne species. As a base, we recommend planting this species in a fully established tank with a mature biological system. On top of this, CO2 injection, low to moderate lighting and a complete supply of macro and micronutrients should be administered. A nutrient-dense substrate and good maintenance habits will improve chances of success as well.
