Our Cryptocoryne Wendtii (red, brown, green) is ordered from our nursery who grows them emersed. Due to how slow Cryptocoryne Wendtii grows, we sell them once we see 2 submerged leaves on the plant. This means that however many emersed leaves are left will probably melt after a few weeks in your tank. With the new submerged growth, the Wendtii should be fine.
Cryptocoryne Wendtii is a great beginner plant because it does not need a whole lot to thrive. The Crypt Wendtii Red variation needs a little more than low light to grow to its fullest potential. Depending on the lighting, either the leaves will grow tall towards the light or more horizontal. Cryptocoryne Wendtii can be propagated by uprooting the whole plant and plucking baby plants from the side of the main root.
