Popular, easy to work with, and among the most popular "Crypts", Cryptocoryne wendtii is a fantastic plant for the blackwater aquarium. The "Brown Indo" variant is endemic to Borneo, and is perfect for many of your Wild Betta, Rasbora, and Gourami biotope aquariums! Moderately fast growing (for a Cryptocoryne, anyways), it may be grown both submerged and emersed! Like all "Crypts', it benefits from a rich substrate.

PREP INSTRUCTIONS: Remove culture gel before planting by rinsing the gel away or soaking the plant in water and squeezing the gel off with your fingers.

They may also cause damage to local economies. They must be thrown away in a manner that assures they won’t be able to get into your local natural aquatic environment.
