It is characteristic for this species that it has a small internodium between
each leaf. Normally the leaves of Cryptocoryne grow out from a rosette
which is so compact that the stem between the individual leaves is invisible.
When you buy Cryptocorynes in pots, it is important that they are not planted in
a lump but separated into smaller portions and preferably planted a few
centimetres apart. See other Cryptocorynes for further information.
