Product Description

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.

  • Vibrant plants

    First purchase this week and I was so pleased. The plants were so healthy and vibrant. It's got me thinking about replanting my other tank with more plants! Will definately be buying from them again

    Wow! Was recommended to visit and have to say that anyone looking for plants and equipment this is definitely the place to go.
    Amazing range. Not the normal few plants chucked into a tank. Absolutely incredible. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

  • Quick service, fantastic plants

    I have ordered from Aquarium Gardens for the first time after seeing them on social media. Well what can I say except WOW, the plants were a really good price, they arrived on time actually quicker than I expected! They arrived in absolutely fantastic condition as if I had picked them out myself, well packaged. The plants themselves were bigger than what I expected to get so definitely value for money and the root systems were well established, can't wait to see them get bigger in my aquariums. Will definitely buy from this company again.
