Cryptocoryne Crispatula Balansae

Cryptocoryne Crispatula Balansae is a beautiful species of Cryptocoryne. This aquarium plant is characterized by its long, slender leaves that offer bold green hues depending on the environment in which it is planted. Like most Cryptocoryne species, Cryptocoryne Balansae does not prefer to be moved once planted. Doing so will potentially lead to Crypt melt so it is best to choose a spot decisively. This aquarium plant can grow quite large and tall, so it works best in the mid to background of a larger planted aquarium tank.

Like all Crypts, Cryptocoryne Balansae is generally easy to maintain once established in a planted aquarium. This aquarium plant will enjoy and experience much better growth in a planted tank that is fully established with CO2 injection, quality planted aquarium soil and high-lighting.


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)
