Plant Description:

Cryptocoryne wendtii red is part of the Cryptocoryne genus. These aquatic plants are native to slow, lowland forested river banks and streams of South-Eastern Asia.

In the aquarium, Cryptocorynes are sometimes referred to as Crypts or water trumpets. These plants do best when planted directly into the substrate. While water trumpets are very hardy aquarium plants that do well  in a variety of water conditions, these plants are sensitive to drastic changes in water chemistry. When first planted in a new aquarium, this plant may shed its leaves known as “crypt melt” as it adjusts to its new environment. This behavior is normal and can be predicted, once acclimatized to its new living conditions it will again flourish and grow.

Wendtii 'Mi Oya' is one of the most popular cryptocorynes and is adored for its hardiness and full leaf rossettes. This crypt is an easy to care for plant that requires low to medium light and minimal fertilization or CO2 supplementation. Wendtii red is ideal for small to large planted aquariums and aquascapes.

This plant grows at a moderate speed and will produce runners when established, with more co2 and plant fertilizer it is possible to produce more growth over time.
