Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia is a bog plant hitherto only found in the northernmost part of the west coast of Sumatra (Indonesia), where it grows in the freshwater tidal area together with the nipa palm (Nypa fruticans). Today, it is know to have been introduced into Singapore, where it grows on swampy ground along forestal rivers. This species has been long known in Europe as aquarium plant and is found in trade regularly. However, in the US it is still quite new and hard to come by.
C. pontederiifolia is quite similar to Cryptocoryne moehlmannii, to which it is closely related and which is found in the same area in nature. However, those varietys commonly found in trade can be discerned quite well regarding characteristics of inflorescence and leaf coloration:
– C. pontederiifolia: the blade of the spathe (pseudopetal) is of a sulphurous yellow or reddish colour on the inside, and the collar is wide and quite high. The leaves are brownish to light purple, especially on the underside.
– C. moehlmannii: the blade of the spathe is of a dark purple on the inside, and the collar is narrow. The leaves are always of a light to olive green, not brownish.
More recent collections from the habitat show a larger variability of the inflorescence, though.
This robust Cryptocoryne species is unproblematic in cultivation and highly adaptable to different conditions in the aquarium. Water parameters may range from soft to hard and from slightly acidic to neutral. Fertilisation with CO2 and intensive light induce more compact growth and a bushier look, whereas medium to low light results in longer stems and overall higher-growing plants.
