Aquatic Tissue Culture Plants
Tissue culture plants are propagated in sterile packages where they grow in non-toxic, germ- and pest-free environments. Complete Aquatic Systems owns and operates our own tissue culture lab thus giving us total control over the varieties and quantities produced. Another benefit to having our own lab is that we don't have any middlemen to deal with.
Originating from the hіghlаndѕ оf central Sri Lаnkа near thе сіtу оf Kаndy, Cryptocoryne parva is the smallest of the water trumpet species. It grows quite slowly, even under ideal conditions. Providing a nutrient-rich substrate and CO2 improves growth, although not significantly. Due to its small size, the plant is ideal for nano tanks or foreground placement in larger tanks.

About Cryptocoryne Parva
Compared to other Crурtосоrуnе species, this plant requires lots of light. It is important to avoid overshadowing the plant with others. Due to its slow growth, it takes a considerable amount of time for the vegetation to form its signature lawn growth. However, the slow growth rate makes it an ideal plant for those who prefer easy maintenance.
Under ideal Cryptocoryne parva care, the plant slowly propagates on its own, forming lateral shoots directly on its rhizome, as well as runners. Keep the plant emersed for faster, more efficient propagation.
