  • Carpeting Plant
  • Nano Plant
  • Low Light

Cryptocoryne parva is unique in that it is one of few foreground, carpeting plants that thrives under low light. It is also one of the smallest crypt species at only a couple inches tall. It has deep green, slender leaves which look almost grassy in appearance. As it grows, it will send out runners which will grow into new plants.

Crypt parva grows extremely slowly, however. So, a lush carpet of crypt parva requires some patience. We recommend using multiple pots to speed up the process.

Good Product

It’s been melting a bit but it seems to be a healthy plant. It was really easy to remove from the pot and there were no pests!

Plants arrived as stated when I placed my order. They were healthy and in great shape. Very happy, was not disappointed.

Cryptocoryne parva

They came in beautiful and as common I had the crypt melt show up (sure it was beginners error). Now I am looking forward to the new growth.

Excellent first time experience

It’s my first time in planted aquarium and first to purchase a live plant on the Internet. It was a great experience. The plants arrived healthy in a cold pack and still moist. I’ve read somewhere that I should sterilize it for snails so I used a 25% hydrogen peroxide dip. It turns out they are pest free so my succeeding purchase I just leave them overnight in fresh dechlorinated water when I cannot plant them right away. I bought one pot of Cryptocoryne Parva carefully separated into smaller groups and planted. Non of the plants I have purchased have melted under water so I guess they were grown already submerged in water. Overall all I am very happy and would be a repeat customer in the near future.

TRIPLE packaging. My best experience I've had to date buying plants on line. Each plant was in a white moisture bag placed inside a plastic zip bag. All the plants were in a large zip closed protection bag.
