Cryptocoryne wendtii (tall)

Cryptocoryne wendtii tall (family Araceae) is a taller growing variety of wendtii with brown colouring when grown in good light. This is a very variable species with different growth habits depending on the eviroment it is in. It is not as fast growing as the green variety of wendtii, probably because of its brown colouring. Splitting the offshoots and replanting them can propagate this plant. Grown emersed Cryptocoryne wendtii tall is more prone to fungal and rot diseases than the green variety, it also does not set seed as easily.
