Diff colors from same Wendtii


Hi all, one of my 1st plant purchases was a Crypt Wendtii. It's doing very well in my 58gal. I took 3 shoots off it. 2 I planted in the same tank, and 1 I moved to the 125. It's the 2 next to the mother plant that look weird. One of them got really dark. It's a brownish copper color, very cool, but doesnt look anything like the mother plant or her new shoots. The next one in the same tank is even a different color still. Anyone know why or how this happens? Is it common?

Completely normal. Under higher light (especially direct light) Crypt wendtii turns a brownish-red. You need to keep it under canopy or in low light for it to stay green. I like both variants.
