Crypt Color Question
I'm not very good with plants but I've had good luck with crypts. I am looking for brown-redish crypts. I bought crypt undulata red, and most of it is green with a hint of light brown. Except a small part of it, which is a nice soft brown color (not quite red though).
There is a nearby store that sells crypt wendtii tropica, which I read it's supposed to be bronze. But it looks green at the store actually. I was wondering if there is a chance that I could get it to turn brown maybe by providing certain ferts, or does the color just depend on the particular strain?
