Cryptocoryne Pygmaea, sometimes known as a dwarf crypt, hails from specific islands of the Philippines. Although its name suggests it is a smaller species, this particular crypt can get fairly large when grown in a well cared for planted tank. Its emersed state is much smaller, but sufficient humidity and conditions must be provided to ensure its survival. In the wild, Cryptocoryne Pygmaea can be found along rivers emersed and submerged.
Coloration is similar to other cryptocoryne species and can vary with shades of greens and browns depending on the aquarium it is kept in. Leaf size and shapes will also vary depending wholly on the care this aquarium plant receives.
