If you do not add Winter Shipping to the order, it will be cancelled and not shipped.

Winter Shipping:  If you do not add the winter shipping to the order containing plants ($5.75), we will not ship it. It only needs to be added once per order. It includes insulation and a heat pack. 

If night-time temps are below 20F, it is not safe to order, even with Winter Shipping Added.  

Cryptocoryne wendtii: Wendtii from different sources can vary quite a bit.  Our version is a gorgeous plant that spreads by runners. The mature leaves are about 6-11" long, dark green with deep purple undersides. We put them in pots which controls their growth. Even so, they can get quite large over time.

  • "Caution, PLEASE READ: Plants are not guaranteed, so be sure the weather is appropriate before ordering. We pack them well, but they will not handle below freezing conditions or extreme heat for long. Night-time lows and day-time highs are both important. You should check our weather also (zip 14760). Gerally they ship fairly well in temps between 20F and 85F.
  • Order when they won't travel over a weekend. Orders should be place no later than Tuesday or you risk weekend delays - at your risk. We do not hold orders. We ship them within one working day of when we receive them.
  • Choose an appropriate shipping method when ordering. Priority Mail is generally faster than Ground if you are more than 500 miles from us.
  • Have them sent to a place where they will be delivered inside. PO Boxes are good. Business addresses are good. Mailboxes outside are bad. If they're in the sun, they are very, very bad.
  • We have ramshorn and apple snails in all our tanks, and there will likely be snails or their eggs on the plants when you receive them.

This plant is wonderful. I put it in the gravel on my tank bottom and it's growing like a weed.

What a beautiful crypt. I put them in clay pots like the ones in your photo and they have almost filled the tank with so much growth.

Great looking crypt! I was a bit worried about getting them in the winter, but the insulation and heat pack got them here in perfect shape.
