Cryptocoryne longicauda from Samarahan

Due to the demand for houses is high, the habitat of Cryptocoryne longicauda from Samarahan will be destroyed soon. The alluvial forest will be cleared for building houses and the streams where thousand of Cryptocoryne longicauda live will be become the concrete drains.

Homalomena is competing with Crypt. longicauda for space....

Alluvial forest.
