This is one of the smaller Cryptocorynes with thin stems leading an oval leaf with bright green color, it will thrive in a wide variety of water and lighting conditions with or without CO2 this little beauty will do well and not take up too much room. It will make new plants from the roots when stimulated by the addition of root fertilizers etc. and it can also melt as Cryptocorynes tend to do when something is changed like lighting etc. but this one is not a sensitive species and will fare a little better than some of the others.

This crypt can also turn a nice beautiful bright red if it is in the right conditions. It stays relatively small compared to other wendtiis.
