Süden von Borneo (Kalimantan)
Cryptocoryne hudoroi is a water trumpet with very narrow-oval, strongly bullous leaves comparable to C. aponogetifolia and C. usteriana, but with a distinctly smaller height (approx. 20 to 50 cm). This species grows in the south of Kalimantan (the Indonesian part of Borneo) in limestone areas where it forms dense submersed populations in rapidly-flowing rivers. When the water is low, these populations continue growing emersed. Up to now it has only been found in few locations.
This Cryptocoryne was imported in the 1990s. Even though it is attractive and relatively easy to care for it is rather rare as aquarium plant.
