This Cryptocoryne is a remarkable novelty from India. It is a form of Cryptocoryne spiralis but resembles much red-brown forms of Cryptocoryne albida that does not occur in India.
As well as other narrow-leaved Cryptocorynes, this plant should get at least medium lighting. A nutrient-rich substrate is recommendable. Until now little is known about this plant.
With its striking dark striped, red-brown, very narrowly lanceolate leaves, Cryptocoryne spiralis ‘Tiger’ provides an interesting accent in the aquarium midground.
