Cryptocoryne Lutea likes to stand up, as opposed to flopping over horizontally. Cryptocoryne Lutea requires a bit more light than the typical Crypt. Depending on lighting, either the leaves will grow tall towards the light or more horizontal. Lutea can be propagated by uprooting the whole plant and plucking baby plants from the side of the main root.

I picked up some crypt lutea, crypt flamingo, Java fern and a few apple snails. Delivery was delayed a full weekend due to USPS not waiting a minute after they knocked, regardless everything survived. Crypts are known to melt back a bit and these were no exception, but the roots were healthy and I had 100% survival despite the delayed shipping. Again, the delay was on USPS, NOT flip.
Plants came in looking great no melting yet new leaves starting so far very happy with them
My plant came healthy and well rooted and I was able to split the root ball into two plants. All of the plants ordered from here are good quality except the moss Dont buy the moss.
Arrived live and well!
