New Tropica shipment just came in - Plant list updated 
 

We just got some Cryptocoryne albida 'Brown' - a nice looking new crypt from Tropica with narrow, wavy leaves. Would look great in a shrimp tank or with hardscape

 

Cryptocoryne-albida-Brown_3_zpsh8quxcgs.

 

th_Cryptocoryne-albida-Brown_4_zps0gfcjith_Cryptocoryne-albida-Brown_1_zps7ordcs

 

From Tropica' page: 

 

This little Cryptocoryne comes from Asia, and grows naturally in for instance Thailand.

The narrow, red-brown leaves have clear, black patterns and beautifully waving leaf edges. Each leaf grows to be about 1-3 cm wide and up to 15 cm long, giving the plant a light and graceful look, which is easy to combine with other plants inside the aquarium, enabling beautiful contrasts.

Like many other Cryptocorynes, it is able to grow under must conditions and can thrive at even very poor light conditions. However, it will only grow very slow under such conditions.

 

Name: Cryptocoryne albida 'Brown'
Type: Rosulate

Origin: Asia 
Difficulty: Easy

Growth rate: Slow
Height: 5 - 15+
Light demand: Low
CO2 : Low

I love the tight formatting and easy to scan list. If I was in Canada, I would totally try you as a seller.

 

Thanks Brolly33, It is a pity that for that you guys are not able to import any of the plants from Tropica & Dennerle (except for the tissue culture ones) but you guys do have a lots of great homegrown aquatic plant nurseries in Florida.
