  • Slow Growing
  • Low Light
  • Carpeting

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.

Cryptocoryne lucens

The plant I receive from Aquarium Coop was very full and healthy, not like other plants I received from other vendors. I am going to be purchasing all my plants from the Coop going forward.

Got a few of these to put in front of my background plants. They grew with no issue, root tabs is all I use for them and they’ve done well so far

Growing slowly but spreading (low tech)

Out of all the plants I ordered this one has had a bit of a harder time adjusting but even still it had very little melt only losing about 3.5 leaves out of 12. It’s already sent out some runners for new plants and those ones are doing their things. Compared to my other crypts this one is growing a lot slower but I am still very happy with this plant and love the shade of green it’s giving. I’m just so into crypts right now.

Great prices, great shipping, great looking.

The Lucens were a lot bigger than I expected, look great, were delivered a day early and look to be taking very well with almost no die back.
