    Received 1 CRYPTOCORYNE WENDTII RED as part of a multiplant order. Beautiful plant, healthy stems and root system. Hope it looks this good once it's established in my aquarium.

    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.
