Cryptocoryne Parva is an easy low light plant that originates from Sri Lanka. It's one of the smallest cryptocoryne species and is one of the few species that does not significantly change its leaf shape or color depending on cultivation conditions. Although it's slow-growing, it will slowly spread out and can form a carpet if given enough nutrients and sufficient lighting.
