Cryptocoryne Axelrodi

Crypt Axelrodi is a rarer Cryptocoryne species that features narrow leaves, hardy nature and a greenish-brown colour. It works great for mid ground plant coverage in planted tanks and is easy to care for. However, we’d recommend that it is not moved like most crypts as this can potentially trigger Crypt melt.

Like other crypts, Cryptocoryne Axelrodi is great for beginner hobbyists due to its ease in keeping and low care requirements. If grown in good aquarium substrate, the plant can feed through the roots and grow quickly without the need for high light, CO2 or fertilizer dosing. However, the addition of CO2 and good lighting will result in healthier, more robust growth. Crypts can be grown emersed or submerged. Propagate by splitting the rhizome or cutting off new growth and replanting.

Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state of the art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants. This means you can enjoy strong and healthy plants free from pests and diseases from the start.

Success Factors:

  • Sufficient light (medium onwards) to get good coloration
  • Avoid extreme water parameters
  • Slightly higher GH values work better (4-5dGH and above)
  • Long term stability of aquarium parameters
  • Fertilization/CO2 levels need not be high but needs to be consistent.
