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.

Crypt Tonkinensis is a less common type of Crypt and has a look that differs from the rest of the Crypts that are commonly seen. Characterized by long and thin straw-like leaves, it can be found growing along streams and rivers located in Thailand and other South East Asian countries. 

 

Although it doesn't resemble the commonly seen Crypts, this plant requires the same care and is generally easy to keep for beginners. If planted in a quality substrate such as Marfied Controsoil, this plant can feed through the roots and grow quickly without the need for high light, CO2 or fertilizer dosing.

Propagation is done by splitting the rhizome or cutting off new growth and replanting.
