Plant Description:

Cryptocoryne willisii' is part of the Cryptocoryne genus. These aquatic plants are native to slow, lowland forested river banks and streams of South-Eastern Asia.

In the aquarium, Cryptocorynes are sometimes referred to as Crypts or water trumpets. These plants do best when planted directly into the substrate. While water trumpets are very hardy aquarium plants that do well in a variety of water conditions, these plants are sensitive to drastic changes in water chemistry. When first planted in a new aquarium, this plant may shed its leaves known as “crypt melt” as it adjusts to its new environment. This behavior is normal and can be predicted, once acclimatized to its new living conditions it will again flourish and grow.

Willisii is an uncommon plant that is adored because of its narrow grass-like leaves. Given enough time, it will grow densely into bushy grass-like patches. This crypt is easy to care for plant that requires low to medium light and low to moderate fertilization and CO2 supplementation. Willisi is ideal for small aquariums, nano aquariums, and shrimp tanks.

Although this plant may be a moderate grower in the aquarium, with more co2 and plant fertilizer it is possible to produce more growth and propagation over time.
