Product Description

Cryptocoryne lutea is one of the easiest Cryptocoryne species from Sri Lanka to care for. The new dwarf form, ´Hobbit′, was isolated from a normal sized plant in the greenhouse and further propagated in the laboratory. Growing to a height of just a few centimetres, this Cryptocoryne is ideal for even the smallest aquaria. The growth rate is also significantly slower than that of the stem form. With good lighting, the leaves become a deep purplishbrown color and make a nice contrast to other green foreground plants.

  • 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.
