$4.85

Cryptocoryne blassi AKA Giant Crypt is a typical though large Cryptocoryne. A very striking plant with narrow oval leaves with bluntly pointed tips. The leaf structure may be quite puckered or it may be smooth. The color of the upper surface varies from olive-green to wine-red; the underside is red. The leaves, up to 6incheslong and 2.5inches wide, are on petioles about 4-6 inches long.

A background plant suitable for large aquariums not less than 50 cm deep. Usually found growing on limestone, this species tolerates hard water well. Once established, it will send out a good number of runners. Do not remove these from the parent plant until they are well developed and have strong roots. When moved, the plant is vulnerable and takes time to acclimate like all crypts( crypt melt). And,like all crypts, should it melt leave the root tuber in place and it will grow back larger than it was before it melted.

these are sold as single Large plants. These plants are 8-10 inches tall already.
