Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Red" is a common and popular plant, perfect for beginners. It thrives in a wide range of water conditions, and will do well even in low-lighting.


The appearance of the plant will partially depend on these conditions:

Low levels of light and nutrients will produce a relatively tall, greenish-brown plant of slow growth. Higher levels of light and nutrition, combined with added CO2, will make the plant grow considerably faster producing shorter leaves of a reddish-brown color.
