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 that control their growth. Even so, over time they develop many rhizomes, spreading to fill whatever container they are in. We send a young runner that has approximately 4-6 leaves.
In the photo, there are several runners that are filling a pot.
"Caution, PLEASE READ": Generally they ship well in temps between 20 F and 90 F (your temps and ours).
We ship plants Mon-Wed. Orders that arrive after 8 AM est, will not ship until the following business day.
Preferably, have them sent to a place where they will not sit in the sun or freezing temps. PO Boxes are good. Business addresses are good. Mailboxes outside are not a good idea unless you're sure to get them out right away. If they sit in the sun for a long time, they can get too hot.
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.
There is a small handling charge added to all orders with live items. This is because of the greater time spent packaging and the cost of insulation, heat packs if needed and the fact that the carriers do not insure anything live that is lost or damaged in transit.
The Aquatic Plant - Cryptocoryne is one of our favorite items. We think you'll love it.
