There is some confusion about the name of this plant. It used (mistakenly) to
be called Cryptocoryne nevillii, but this is the name of a species that
has never been used in aquariums. Like many other Cryptocorynes, not much
happens the first month after planting. But then it starts to grow, and
willingly produces plenty of runners which form a compact group. See other
Cryptocorynes for further information.
