Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Compact'


Another variety of C. wendtii is our wendtii 'Compact' – a medium-sized, brown water trumpet that grows well and is an easy plant to care for. Leaves above the surface are rust brown, below the surface they are chocolate brown. Planting tip: keep these plants small and compact by planting in a clay pot. Press the pot directly into the substrate. By limiting the space available for the roots, you keep the plants smaller, creating a bonsai effect.
