Cryptocoryne lutea also comes to us from Sri Lanka. The leaves are usually dark green and some display a subtle veiny texture. As with most other types of water trumpet, propagation is via runners. New shoots burst through the substrate just a few centimetres away from the parent plant. If you want to suppress this spread, it is sufficient to simply remove any new shoots with sharp scissors or a knife.
