ABC PLANTS - Cryptocoryne lutea
|Availability:||In stock (4)|
Cryptocoryne lutea ‘hobbit’ is a dwarf variety of the standard Cryptocoryne lutea species. This miniature Cryptocoryne, creates a colorful foreground accent or focal point in bonsai and nano aquascapes and visual interest in larger tanks. It can be planted into the substrate or attached to ornamental rocks or driftwood. The luxuriously deep purple-brown foliage will contrast beautifully against the green foliage of other common foreground plants.
Although slow-growing in comparison to its larger relatives, C. lutea ‘hobbit’ is relatively undemanding, though moderate to high lighting and CO2 supplementation will keep it at its healthiest and most vibrant. Like other Cryptocoryne species, C. lutea ‘hobbit’ should not be subject to sudden changes in tank conditions and needs a stable environment to thrive.
