The Cryptocoryne Mi Oya (sometimes called 'mioya') is a variety of wendtii hailing from the Mi Oya river in Sri Lanka. These uncommon crypts are characterized with long, red stems and ruffled leaves that appear reddish-brown.

Like it's wendtii relatives, the 'Mi-oya' is a slow grower not requiring a high amount of maintenance or care. Plant the 'mi oya' in a nutrient rich substrate with low-to-moderate light and this plant will take care of the rest.

Its versatility and ease of care allow it to survive in a wide range of tank conditions, including temperature (60 degrees - 86 degrees F) and pH (6.5 - 7.5). It's a wonderful plant for beginners, experts, and all skill levels in between.

Crypt melt

It is not uncommon for aquarists to experience the dreaded Crypt melt with newly planted crypts. Crypt melt is the process of leaves turning yellow or brown, then becoming translucent before seemingly melting away from existence.

This phenomenon can occur for various reasons, but more often than not, it's just a matter of your new crypt adjusting to its new surroundings. Do not get discouraged, and definitely do not remove the plant! As long as the roots are strong, there is a high likelihood that new leaves will sprout and be stronger than ever.
