Slow Growing Plant Suggestions Needed for 20g Tall

Freshfishguy

Hey guys!
I was hoping you guys could provide me with some slow growing, easy maintenance plant suggestions for my 20g tall. I want to make it more fully planted. So far I have Java Fern on the back of the rocks and some crypts in the front right and left of the rocks. I’m going to take out the skull to plant the tank more completely.

Ideally I’d love some plant suggestions for all sections of the tank—background, mid ground, and foreground that are slow growing and low maintenance and won’t get too tall for my 20 Tall! Thank you!

Some Anubias? Or some moss would look really good on the rocks

Crypt spiralis for the background, make sure you dose a good comprehensive fertilizer with potassium. Similar growth and appearance to Jungle Val but slow-growing and does well in lower light levels.

You might also like dwarf lilies, such as tiger lotus, as an accent piece.

Is Retrospiralis the same in terms of growth pace and care? Pretty much everywhere is sold out of spiralis right now :/.

If you have hard water you could also try crypt balansae (hard water crypt) which grows similar to crypt spiralis.
