The central highlands of Sri Lanka are home to this green water trumpet. Its tiny stature, around 5-10 cm, makes it the smallest species in cultivation for aquarists. It grows in dense colonies along the banks of fast-flowing rivers. Cryptocoryne parva grows very slowly and is a somewhat demanding plant. Fairly strong light and CO2 supplementation are essential. This small water trumpet is highly recommended for Nano Cubes. Even the smallest 10 L cube provides enough space for this little gem.
