Type: Cryptocoryne Petchii
Growth Rate: Medium
Cryptocoryne beckettii 'Petchii' is a small variety of Cryptocoryne beckettii from Sri Lanka, which has beautiful, slightly fluted leaf margins, 10-15 cm long. Leaves become dark olive-brown with violet underside. Like many other Cryptocorynes, the leaf colour and shape depends largely on environmental conditions in the aquarium. Bare in mind these plants do not like to be moved around and will melt each time they are moved. Find a spot and leave it there for best results and you will eventually end up with multiple plants of the same sort surrounding it. This can take some time however.
