Crypt Pontederiifolia is a unique variant of Cryptocoryne that can be identified by the long stems and arrowhead-shaped leaves. The leaves are generally light to olive green with the underside sometimes developing a slightly pink hue. This plant can grow quite tall, making it suitable for the midground or background of your aquarium.
If grown in good aquarium substrate such as Controsoil, the plant can feed through the roots and grow quickly without the need for high light, CO2 or fertilizer dosing.
Crypts can be grown emersed or submerged. Propagate by splitting the rhizome or cutting off new growth and replanting
