It has a very unique pattern on its slender reddish leaves. Since it grows long, it is suitable for background.

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.
