Cryptocoryne Cordata Var. Siamensis ‘Blassii’ is another plant that gave me trouble submersed, however in emersed conditions this plant grows extremely well and sends many daughter plants.
This is a great beginner Cryptocoryne that you don’t always see for sale; I originally got this species from Oriental Aquarium in Singapore.
Lighting- Coralife T5NO Dual Bulb – 6700k and rosette bulb – Lights are on for 10 hours.
Substrate- Homemade substrate mix, cow manure, sheep manure, worm castings, natural red clay, and cheap topsoil.
In some pictures you can see the pink “shine” the plant has, it’s quite attractive.
