Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Brown'


This brown variation on Cryptocoryne wendtii is also very popular and can be used in a variety of plant landscapes. The edges of the leaves are slightly wavy and some are bullate (blistered or dimpled). In good light the leaves turn a deep, dark brown. In combination with green water trumpets it provides good contrast. As with almost all Crypts from Sri Lanka, these grow well in hard water and are therefore ideal for cichlid aquariums.
