Cryptocoryne Mioya is a lovely, colorful aquatic plant recommended for beginners due to its easy-care requirements. They produce a reddish stem, with slender, ruffled-edged, upright leaves, ranging in color from copper brown to bright green. This plant can be grown either emersed or fully submerged. Mioya naturally grows in regions of India, New Guinea, and Southeast Asia. They prefer streams and rivers with low flow and will tolerate varying light conditions. 

Best Locations For Growing Cryptocoryne Mioya

Cryptocoryne Mioya is an ideal foreground or midground plant in your aquascape. It will grow full and lush, filling up your tank. It prefers not to be moved or relocated once planted. Cryptocoryne Mioya can be grown partially out of water, “emersed”. The roots and substrate remain underwater, while the plant stems and leaves grow fully exposed to air. Alternatively, you can grow these plants completely under the water line.

Cryptocoryne Mioya Sunlight Requirements

This aquarium plant is not picky about light conditions and grows well under low to medium light levels.

Cryptocoryne Mioya Care

Once you plant your Cryptocoryne Mioya, there is little else you will need to do. This plant prefers temperatures ranging from 68 - 83 degrees F. It is sensitive to abrupt changes in its environment, which could result in “melt”, where its leaves turn mushy; thus avoid extremes and keep its environment consistent. 

Cryptocoryne Mioya throws out runners under the substrate which will create more baby plants. Propagation is easy by splitting the rhizome or cutting the new growth off and planting. Use a nutrient-rich soil substrate in your aquarium to give your plants their best start.

Watering Cryptocoryne Mioya

Maintain aquarium water pH levels between 6.5 - 7.5, with water temperatures ranging from 68 - 83 degrees F.

Feeding Cryptocoryne Mioya

CO2 injection is recommended but not always necessary if grown in a healthy nutrient-rich substrate.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
