    Be careful

    I love the color of these leaves in contrast with all the green I have in my tank. However, the plant did tank awhile to just to my tank and it melting off quite a bit for the first three weeks. Now there are leaves galore!

    Grown Immersed

    Ordered one pot and knew it was coming as an immersed-grown plant but it is still disconcerting to watch the beautiful thing melt away. I have lost about half the leaves within about a hoping the roots will survive long enough to grow out the submersed leaves. Requires daily maintenance to trim the melting stems and leaves so I would not recommend placing this plant in a tank with skittish or shy fish until it has fully converted to its submersed form.

    Cryptocoryne undulatus

    Posted by Matt McConkey on Oct 4th 2013

    Arrived in great shape. Has a nice contrast of coloration. The older leaves are light green and the newer growth has a nice bronze/reddish tint to it. Looks to be a slow grower in my tank (low light/excel/liquid ferts) thus far, but they've only been in about two weeks. Looking forward to seeing how they look when they grow out.
