    Excellent Quality

    Posted by Charles Masters on Nov 20th 2020

    All of the plants were in excellent shape and much larger than expected. This was my first time ordering plants online anywhere and is my new plant source. I definitely received my money’s worth.

    Melts back hard, but still hanging in

    Posted by Thomas G on May 11th 2020

    Crypts are notorious for melting back, but the Wendtii Red and Bronze from my order suffered a TON from a new tank. There's new growth already, though, so cutting back and letting it concentrate on new growth ensures a healthy plant.

    Nice crypt for the price!

    Posted by Kattie Westgate on May 10th 2020

    I planted this in a mixture of Seachem Fluorite and pool filter sand, and 10 days later it is looking great! It did melt some, but I expect that with crypts. It is sending up healthy new leaves and looking very happy.

    Best Crypt

    Posted by Frank Drescher on Aug 11th 2012

    I tried all kind of different Crypst and almost gave up after several episodes of crypt melts. All my fishtanks are low tech with low to medium light. Mi Oya was the only Crypt that did not melt. It grows well in low-tech, low-light set-up and has become one of my favorite plants. I also learned over the months that fertilizer tabs make a difference with crypts and they grow better in low light (at least in low tech). The colors of Mi Oya can vary under different light conditions but look absolutely stunning under simple fluorescent light that comes with the cheap aquarium kits from the usual retailers.
