Comments:

An easy growing plant with a red/ brown tinge too the crimpled leaves to give some colour to the tank. It is found in the river Mi Oya (hence the name).

Mod edit: As with all cryptocorynes, it is a heavy root-feeder and care must be taken to ensure that it is receiving adequate nutrients. Rootabs are always appreciated. In addition, it can be subject to "cryptocoryne melt" which usually occurs after a change in water chemistry or a relocation, so once planted, it should not be disturbed. Usually, however, the plant will recover from this.
