Cryptocoryne wendtii is a hardy aquascape plant, native to Sri Lanka with a medium growth rate. It is one of the most variable species, with several color variations including reds, browns, and greens. It's an excellent choice for both beginners and experienced aquarists. Cryptocoryne wendtii is easy to grow and creates stunning displays. It forms deep roots and is an excellent selection for fish that like to dig. 

Best Locations For Growing Cryptocoryne Wendtii

Cryptocoryne wendtii can be planted in small groupings to make a beautiful focal point. It requires stable conditions and a little time to adjust to its new environment. They are an ideal plant for the foreground or midground in the tank. They are easy to maintain once established but avoid drastic changes in their surroundings so the leaves don't turn mushy. 

Cryptocoryne Wendtii Sunlight Requirements

This plant prefers low to moderate full-spectrum light, but it tolerates a wide range of light levels. When placed in lower light conditions, it produces longer foliage. 

Cryptocoryne Wendtii Care

Cryptocoryne wendtii can be grown submerged or emersed. Allow your plant to settle into its new environment and leave it be. It prefers not to be moved once it’s planted. Propagation is easy, simply remove a portion of the root with the stem attached, then relocate it to another part of the substrate.

Watering Cryptocoryne Wendtii

Keep water pH levels around 6 - 7.5 and average water temperatures from 71 - 86 degrees F. Cryptocoryne does not like to be relocated once planted. Be mindful not to make drastic changes to the aquarium, as they will need a little time to acclimate to a new aquarium environment.  

Feeding Cryptocoryne Wendtii

Cryptocoryne wendtii is a root feeder and develops a large system of roots that are not visible above the substrate. CO2 injections and quality aquarium soil will promote lush growth.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
