DOOA STYLE #10 ‘Cherishing small Cryptocoryne in a spathe-like glass container’

I believe that the charm of Cryptocoryne can be fully understood by reading this month’s Aqua Journal. Cryptocoryne has a long history as an aquarium plant. Even in recent years, new species are constantly being described, inviting enthusiasts into the intricate world of aquatic plants. In this layout example, I grow three plants of Cryptocoryne schulzei, which is native to the Malay Peninsula, but you can enjoy the same layout style with any small Cryptocoryne species. At the bottom of the container, you will see that the plant has very long and thick roots running in all directions, which is hard to imagine given the plant’s compact appearance. This is something you probably don’t see in potted conditions. It may feel a bit challenging for you, but no worries. Glass Pot SHIZUKU will take you into an immersive experience.
