crypt wendtii green at Petsmart, is it labeled correctly?


I ask as the package is really tiny little plants, look like some sort of dwarf crypt, not the one I was expecting that grows 6+ inches tall. Didn't buy them yet, wanted to see if anyone on here could confirm first.]

Thanks!

I have bought two packages of those over the past few months, and both appear to be crypt wendtii "green". The ones I have in my 10 gallon are around 5 inches tall now.

Here's a picture of one of four I grew emersed straight from the package. It just went in the tank a few days ago. So, maybe it will help confirm the identity.

I bought a 50% off one where most of it was dying. Placed them in my Evolve 8 and bounced back and growing strong!

I believe it is, I bought a packet from there a few months ago. They were small to begin with, but in good shape and have grown really well since. I separated mine into 3 clumps, and they're at about 5-6" at the moment.
