Cryptocoryne Balansae is a proven adaptable aquarium plant, one of the more popular amongst hobbyists. A beautiful tall background Crypt with long crimped leaves. It appreciates and responds well to CO2 infusion. Propagation like most Crypts is by runners. If leaves die when first planted, persevere it should develop new fresh growth. Old, well established leaves, under moderate to high light, are most likely to flower and create runners. Under ideal conditions, leaves will grow to 24 inches tall and 1 inch wide, making it best placed in tank background.
This Plant enjoys mineral rich substrate to be at it's best, so we recommend buying some TNC Nutrient Plugs.

I received my order today and I am messaging to say how pleased I was to receive your plants. I've used various online plant order sites in the past and been happy, but the parcel you sent me was filled with established potted plants, all fresh and healthy with no wilting, in a practical and safe container. The service provided was much more than I had ever expected, and I will definitely be ordering again, as well as telling others about your online store. I work in an aquatics store so frequently come into contact with customers seeking quality plants at great value. I will not hesitate to send them your way! Thank you so much, I'll be ordering more next week when I have been paid (:
