Tyrone It depends on the conditions of your set up. Yes, to your question, if it's high-tech. No, controllable, for low-tech.

Thanks. Is it hard to manage? As in, does it become a "weed" like jungle vals, wisteria...etc do and hard to control?

I see the tops are not on tight. From what I have read that is very important so that the plants don't consume all of the Co2 in the containers.

Patriot I'm still trying to get my plants to be deep red. They are brown also covered I algae.

BDoss1985 Tessa is right on this, i have red green and bronze and at times I've only been able to tell the red apart due to the stem being deep red.

Crypts tend to have a mind of their own. I bought a bunch of green wendtii (at least that's what it said on the tag), now almost a year later some are bright green, some green mixed with brown and some almost coppery brown.

LifesABichir Hello! I received c. wendtii green and it's turning brown over the months. Is it a different type I received? Also the last image does not look like my other wendtii. The leaves are thinner.
