- Slow Growing
- Low Light
Cryptocoryne lucens grows to about 3 inches typically. It makes a great foreground to midground plant due to its smaller size. Crypt lucens does well under low light and grows fairly slowly.
It will send out runners as it grows and will eventually form a dense, bushy carpet of narrow, bright green leaves even without high light. But, it takes quite a bit of time. For a faster carpet effect, use multiple pots of Cryptocoryne lucens.
The crypt arrived in great condition and is already showing new growth.
Arrived in excellent condition. I have heard so much about the dreaded crypt melt, but have not experienced it with this or the lutea that I purchased.
One of my favorite plants I’ve gotten and it took to my aquarium beautifully
This plant arrived in good shape and has thrived since planting. It is shooting out runners and has new growth already, would recommend.
This is one of my favorite crypts. I received healthy, beautiful plants!
