Cryptocoryne crispulata var. balansae originates from flowing rivers and streams in southern Thailand, often forming dense colonies with leaves extending across the water's surface. Due to the limestone composition of the soil, the rivers in this area have very hard water which is loaded with calcium. This attractive Crypt has proven to be adaptable and well suited for aquarium use. It is currently among the most popular Cryptocoryne species in the planted aquarium hobby.

        No crypt melt!

        Cute little crypt. I was very surprised that they greened up right away and did not melt at all.

        Great plants

        Very happy with the plants. They came in very healthy and are doing great in my tanks.

        It’s Growing!

        I use a liquid fertilizer in my tank and it’s growing after only a few days! It’s lush and green like all their products! This is my go to place for all my plants!

        Good health

        The plants i received were in great health and doing well in. I did a bulk purchase as I was setting up a 150gallon. I am very pleased with quality and quantities of plants that came. Very happy customer.

        Cryptocoryne Balansae - very small, still...

        Dear APF,

        Back in October I purchased 3 Cryptocoryne Balansae plants from you for my thriving fully planted 75 gal. tank. The plants were very small when arriving, but I wanted to see how they would do before reviewing the purchase. Here almost two months later the plants have not died, but have also not grown as much as a millimeter. I have had these plants before and find the lack of growth unusually poor. So, to this point this purchase has been a disappointment.
