Crytocoryne Wendtii originates from Sri Lanka.  This plant can be used as midground or, in smaller aquariums, as background plant.  This is one of the most hardiest and adaptable of Cryptocoryne species and will do well in most aquarium conditions and under varied lighting. The leaf color may depend on a number of factors, including lighting and fertilization, and may range from brown to red to an olive green.  C. Wendtii looks best when planted in groups, creating dense clumps.  It is medium to fast grower and propagates from shoots and runners.

    C. Wendtii Red

    Well packed and fast shipping. I gave it 4 star because some of the leaves were dying when it arrived and those leaves melted right away after a day or two. But the remaining leaves were very healthy and now sprouting new leaves. This Crypt is very beautiful. Highly recommended to anybody who wants a plant that is not too demanding but have very beautiful characteristics and coloration. Both are already showing red coloration on their new leaves. I will still buy again with this seller.

    These are very cool plants that work well in the mid ground of my 20-gallon tank. In a week they've already grown taller and the leaves seem to be reaching toward the surface. Very nice-looking plants.

    These went in a 40g blackwater tank, and are doing well so far. Came very clean and healthy looking. One plant lost a leaf shortly after planting, but knowing Crypts can sometimes "melt" and loose all their leaves, mine are doing great! Planted in sand substrate with a root tab near each plant. Hopefully we'll see some new leaves once they adjust.
