Description

A time-tested, undemanding and decorative Cryptocoryne from Sri Lanka, closely related to Cryptocoryne wendtii and C. beckettii. Cryptocoryne undulata, also known under its synonym Cryptocoryne axelrodii, develops narrowly lanceolate submerged leaves with undulate margins and a green to dark brown coloration, often with a dark marbled pattern. The rhizome of old submersed plants sometimes grows vertically out of the substrate, like a small tree trunk with stilt roots.

The Undulate Crypt still grows under low light and without fertiliser, however, it does better under medium lighting and a nutrient-rich substrate. As well as many other Cryptocoryne species, this plant easily propagates by underground runners.

Cryptocoryne undulata is a versatile aquarium plant, best placed in the midground, in higher tanks also in the foreground. It forms extended stands with time, and with its narrow, dark foliage, it is especially suitable for aquascapes in the nature aquarium style.

Like so many other species from the Cryptocoryne wendtii group (= C. beckettii group), C. undulata has long been known in the hobby. In nature, it is found emersed and submersed along rivers and rivulets on the island of Sri Lanka.

C. undulata is as easy in cultivation as the other species from the group of plants related to C. wendtii. This species grows even in unfertilised water and under low light, however, growth is very slow then, and the overall height of the plant increases. When planted in nutrient-rich substrate and provided with lots of light its growth rate increases, however, the plants will stay smaller as a whole. Under these conditions, the mother plant will form many runners, and the plant mass can grow substantially within just a few months. It is not necessary to fertilise this plant with CO2. Due to its compact growth, it should not be planted too densely. (read more)

I expected a green plant with thin, wavy leaves. The leaves became immediately brown and wide. Few plants. It looks very much like a "Broad leves" but I'm not sure. (read more)
