  • Cryptocoryne usteriana is an impressive plant from the Philippines.
  • Unlike many other Cryptocoryne species, it grows permanently under water and is therefore not suitable for emersed cultivation in the greenhouse.
  • For this reason it is very rarely found commercially.
  • The bullate leaves are up to 70 cm long and the leaves are bright mid-green with a reddish underside.
  • With medium lighting, Cryptocoryne usteriana grows best in hard, alkaline water and is therefore ideal for cichlids from Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika.
  • Even with a low CO2 supply the plant still grows rather well and is very easy to care for.
  • The more familiar Cryptocoryne aponogetifolia looks confusingly similar.
