Crytorcoryne Parva - wabi kusa 帕夫椒草 - 侘草型

RM 12.00


Cryptocoryne parva fromac Sri Lanka is the smallest of all Cryptocorynes (only 3-6 cm tall and a roset less than 5-8 cm wide). It is one of the few species that does not significantly change its leaf shape and colour depending on cultivation conditions. It needs more light than most other Cryptocorynes because it almost loses its leaf blade under water. So it must never be overshadowed by other plants. Individual plants should be planted a few centimetres apart, and after about six months they will form a cohesive low group of plants. Recommended for foreground planting. 

Growth rate: Slow

Height: 5-10cm++

Light demand: Medium

這是一種迷你型水草,無論水上草及水中草再怎麼長也長不高,通常只有5-7㎝而已。水上草的葉片長卵形,但葉端尖細,綠色,有柄,在自然界中生命力相當強,但成長速度卻很緩慢。開花時,佛燄苞長2.5㎝左右,有捲纏狀,帶疣,暗紫色。水中草與水上草同型,不過葉的兩端呈尖銳狀,以及葉柄比葉片長,顏色則保持原來的鮮綠色。生長速度比陸生更慢,一株能長出的葉片數目有限,很難形成整叢的一片,因此需要較長的時間栽培,才能看出它的裝飾效果。必須提供高光度,添加二氧化碳,以及保持充足的養分,育成才不會發生困難。
