Cryptocoryne spec. 'Flamingo'

Info

This unusual and attractive cultivar is called ‘Flamingo’. Its most eye-catching feature is the light to dark-pink tones of the leaves. This variety came about by quirk of nature in one of our greenhouses. ‘Flamingo’ is cultivated only through meristem propagation in the lab, and is sold in a plastic culture dish. It grows very slowly in aquariums and must have good lighting to ensure successful rooting and growth. A wonderfully decorative addition combined with mosses or Hemianthus in small aquariums or Nano Cubes.
