This form of Cryptocoryne spiralis from India is still hardly known in Europe. In its submerged form it develops dark brown-red, strap-like leaves with ruffled edges, somewhat resembling those of Cryptocoryne crispatula var. balansae. Until now little information is available about this Cryptocoryne; apparently it reaches a moderate size and is recommendable for the midground, in smaller aquariums also for the foreground.
As well as other narrow-leaved Cryptocorynes, this plant should get at least medium lighting, and a nutrient-rich substrate is recommendable.
