Originating from Sri Lanka the Cyrptocoryne wendtii brown has waxy, bulleted leaves. Ranging from brown to green in colour. They offer a great contrasting look to your tank. This particular plant given the right conditions can really grow in your tank.

Like most crypts the 'brown' is very robust and not overly difficult to care for.

Understanding Crypt melt - all Cryptocoryne species require stable water parameter and light conditions. Once planted, Crypts should not be moved otherwise it can trigger what is called Crypt melt. If a Crypt has a significant change of environment (ph, kh, gh, lighting intensity or duration, root disturbance etc), Crypt melt can be triggered. The leaves start to disintegrate as the plant prepares for its new environment - DO NOT WORRY! Your plant will begin to grow back over the next 30 days (sometimes sooner, sometimes later) - it's still very much alive and busy getting ready for the growth of new leaves. In the meantime, any decaying leaves should be trimmed and recycled in a compost bin.

Plant arrived well packaged and in good health. Planted it no issue (into Tropica Aquarium Soil, powder). Can't wait to see the final effect once they have finished going through their "crypt melt"

I purchased quite a few different cryptocorynes over the last few months and all have adapted well to my tanks with no signs of crypt rot or melt. All plants arrived in perfect condition

Best plants I have ever bought/received. Where as other companies I have dealt with send them flat in a packet these were delivered with others well packaged both around the plant and inside as there was some water around the roots. I WILL be using again.

A lovely, healthy plant which looks wonderful in my tank. Many thanks for a very easy purchase.

Like all Crypt's it's very fussy when moved, so expect many leaves to die off when you plant. The good news it that when they grow back they have some fantastic small dark green/brown leaves. It's really contrasting well with my very bright greens that I get from my other plants.

Hasn't grown as quickly has I'd hoped, Plant arrived in good condition, there was a few leaves that were damaged (eaten) and a couple of broken stems but out of all the plants is the one i'm least impressed with. Hopefully in the next few weeks the plant will start to grow taller as per the description.

Hi just found this web site, can these plants be used for a cold water goldfish tank?
