Cryptocoryne Wendtii Brown

Cryptocoryne Wendtii Brown originates from Sri Lanka. This undemanding, easy-to-grow plant easily adapts to a wide range of conditions. The leaf color depends on a number of factors, including lighting, and may range from green to brown/red.

Care & Maintenance for Wendtii Brown

Cryptocoryne Wendtii Brown, like most cryptocoryne species, will need time to acclimatize to a new aquarium environment. During this acclimatization process, the plant may lose some of its leaves but it should also start producing new leaves. However, once established and under stable conditions, Cryptocoryne Wendtii is a relatively hardy and easy-to-keep plant.    

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Low
  • Temperature Range: 71-86°F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground and Midground

Cryptocoryne Wendtii Brown is great for foreground areas of the aquarium. It looks best when planted in small groups around driftwood or rocks, providing visual interest to the aquascape. Cryptocoryne Wendtii Brown does not require CO2 supplementation, high light, or specialized substrate, but it will grow better if planted in a rich substrate.  

Cryptocoryne Wendtii Brown is also available potted. We offer other varieties of Cryptocoryne species, including Cryptocoryne Wendtii Red, Cryptocoryne Beckettii, Cryptocoryne Parva, Cryptocoryne Lucens, Cryptocoryne Lutea, and many more.

    I may have manhandled these guys and I'm mad at myself. Kind of a novice but they came perfect and the people at Modern Aquarium know what they are doing. I hope they recover.

    Had to place a second order of these plants. They are so wonderful in the tank, with their red tones and dark greens, playing quite well against the Saba wood and the dark substrate. Thank you, Modern Aquarium, for having great options for low tech nano tanks!

    This is my second purchase of this plant. It had beautiful color and is thriving in my low-tech tank. I cannot say enough about the quality of all the plants I have purchased from Modern Aquarium. They have far exceeded my expectations, they are healthy and packaged with great care.

    This brown cryptocoryne was really nice when I got it with the exception of two rotting leaves. The rest was healthy, though! I simply cut them at the stem and the two plants are doing swimmingly~ Overall, Modern Aquarium has great quality plants, and I won't let a couple of melty leaves deter me from placing another order.
