Well i spoke to my LFS again and they said that the Tropica Cryptocoryne wendtii ''green'' is only really available to Tropica so the one i have is most probably different! Which i think is the case. Considering my nano tank is quite small i dont want some larger plant sapping up all the nutrients then having to be pulled out.
I've managed to located a Cryptocoryne wendtii ''green'' at the LFS so i'll pick it up tomorrow. I'll transfer the Cryptocoryne wendtii ''green'' Tall to my 33gallon i have.
cheers for your help!

Cryptocoryne wendtii ''green'' is suitable for small aquariums. When grown in an open space the leaves will virtually lie on the bottom. Like most other Sri Lanka Cryptocorynes, it also grows well in hard water. Like many other plants, it can be affected by cryptocoryne disease. One way to prevent this is by only leaving the 4-5 newest leaves on the plant when planting. It is a good foreground plant, even in small aquariums. See other Cryptocorynes for further information.
