Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Brown'

Brown variety of C. wendtii.

Easy to grow in any water and at a broad range of temperatures. As with all Crypts, lighting and water chemistry should be kept constant if possible and a nutrient-rich substrate should be provided. This will result in fast growth and dense tufts.

Older stands tend to grow very dense and new leaves will eventually become long-stemmed. This will inevitably result in undesirable height but can be avoided by regular pruning. In order to keep the tufts low and compact, pull out longer leaves until the whole clump is nicely shaped again. If you do this regularly, once every week or two, your crypts will always be in great shape.

Recommended for large show tanks as groundcover. Thus used, no pruning is required.
