Cryptocoryne spiralis 'Tiger'

Cryptocoryne spiralis 'Tiger' is a unique aquarium plant that is suitable for the midground area of a planted aquarium. This Crypt variety is characterized by long, thin leaves that display an interesting pattern and are reddish brown in color. Cryptocoryne spiralis 'Tiger' is a medium to large sized specimen, making it a fantastic choice for transitioning the midground to the background area of the planted tank. Like other Cryptocoryne plants, Cryptocoryne spiralis 'Tiger' is relatively easy-going, but needs to become established first. We recommend planting this species in an aquarium that is already established as newly setup aquariums may contribute to chances of Crypt melt. Once this aquarium plant grows a solid root system, it is sure to standout in the aquascape layout!
As several other Cryptocoryne spiralis forms, 'Tiger' is apparently a quite easy aquarium plant. Nutrient-rich substrate and CO2 addition are very beneficial for its growth. It is not a low-light plant, the lighting should be at least moderate, and strong light enhances its showy coloration. With time, daughter rosettes appear at the base of the plant that develops a tuft with many leaves and strong roots. The daughter plants can be cut off for propagation. We have not yet noticed long runners in C. spiralis 'Tiger'.
Cryptocoryne spiralis 'Tiger' is an eye-catcher in not too small aquariums, best as a solitary bush in the midground. Its red-brown tones contrast well with light green plants.
