SubstrateSource Cryptocoryne wendtii guide included
SubstrateSource Cryptocoryne wendtii is one of the most popular Cryptocoryne used in planted aquariums. Through selective propagation methods, growers have produced C. wendtii in green, brown (bronze), red, and more. Cryptocoryne wendtii leaves add a delicate touch to the aquascape. We like to use this plant in middle zones, between foreground and background plants. Cryptocoryne wendtii "Red" begins as a green plant and develops reddish or pink leaves as it matures. The plant is grown in rockwool growing media inside of a 2 inch mesh pot. Each pot contains a small grouping of plants that are rooted into the media. Shipping and Packaging: Each pot is individually packaged in a recyclable, clear plastic bag. The plant is shipped, sealed with adequate moisture, but not completely submerged in water. Scissors may be required to open the bag. In the Aquarium: For optimal growth, provide this plant with an established freshwater aquarium with sufficient light, water circulation, and stable temperature. As with most aquatic varieties, this plant does benefit from supplemental nutrients and CO2, but these additions may not be required and depend on your setup and aquarium inhabitants. SubstrateSource Plant Guide: A plant guide is included with this plant. The guide contains brief care and illustrated setup instructions specific to this plant.
