Cryptocoryne Beckettii

Cryptocoryne beckettii is a small variety of Cryptocoryne beckettii from Sri Lanka, which has beautiful, slightly fluted leaf margins. Leaves become dark olive-brown with violet underside. Like many other Cryptocorynes, the leaf colour and shape depends largely on environmental conditions in the aquarium.

Note : Cryptocoryne beckettii used to be erroneously traded under the name ‘Cryptocoryne petchii’. Cryptocoryne petchii is a smaller form with slightly fluted leaves.
