Cryptocoryne Wendtii Red
Crytocoryne Wendtii originates from Sri Lanka. This plant can be used as a midground or, in smaller aquariums, as a 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 several factors, including lighting and fertilization, and may range from brown to red to olive green.
Care & Maintenance
C. Wendtii looks best when planted in groups, creating dense clumps. It is a medium to fast grower and propagates from shoots and runners.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Low-Moderate
- Temperature Range: 71-82°F
- Tank Placement: Foreground - Midground
You can plant Wendtii in gravel. No specialized soil is required although Cryptocoryne Wendtii Red will do much better in a loosely packed substrate rich in nutrients such as Fluval Stratum or Rio Escuro.
Cryptocoryne Wendtii Red is also available as potted.

Nice plant, waiting to see how well it does with my other Crypt plants.
I highly recommend these sturdy plants for an additional source of oxygen for your fish and snails!
Well packed and healthy plants. Happy to get them for my Aquarium .
So far so good! Plant arrived in great shape
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.
Nice looking plants and so far, no Crypt melt at all.
Great hardy plant, slow growing with minimal crypt melt
Look good in the tank.
