LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT
Cryptocoryne Lucens is an easy to care for plant. The plant produces narrow , pure green leaves. Crytocoryne lucens is one of the larger plants of the Cryptocoryne family. It's growth rate is slow though so will only get to about which is fairly tall for a Cryptocoryne. As with many rosette-like plants, only the older, outer leaves should be removed. However, it is possible to prune the plant hard to encourage more dense growth.
This hardy and undemanding plant is a mid-ground plant native. Just like other Crypt species, this one requires stable water parameters and can't be moved all the time as the leaves will start to melt. It does not require CO2 injection but benefits from it as well as liquid fertilizers. This plant has big, elongated broad leaves with green coloration on top and light green on the underside. When pruned every so often it will grow more like a bush instead of tall and high, which is more appealing. It will propagate by sending runners. Quite common in the aquarium hobby and great for beginners. It will propagate quickly by sending runners once settled in its new environment.
