Cryptocoryne Wendtii Green

Cryptocoryne wendtii Green is a popular and versatile aquatic plant that is highly valued in the aquarium hobby. It belongs to the Araceae family and is known for its hardy nature, making it a favorite among both beginner and experienced aquarists. This plant originates from Sri Lanka, and its ‘Green’ variety is one of several different color variations within the Cryptocoryne wendtii species.

Like other crypts, this plant is recommended for beginners due to its ease in keeping and low care requirements.  If grown in good aquarium substrate, the plant can feed through the roots and grow quickly without the need for high light, CO2 or fertilizer dosing.  Light plays a decisive role in the growth habit of this variety. Lots of light results in a horizontal leaf position, whereas little light prompts it to grow vertically.
Crypts can be grown emersed or submerged.  Propagate by splitting the rhizome or cutting off new growth and replanting.


Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state of the art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants. This means you can enjoy strong and healthy plants free from pests and diseases from the start.

Success Factors:

  • Sufficient light (medium onwards) to get good coloration
  • Avoid extreme water parameters
  • Slightly higher GH values work better (4-5dGH and above)
  • Long term stability of aquarium parameters
  • Fertilization/CO2 levels need not be high but needs to be consistent.
