Bronze Crypt Wendtii (Green with Bronze Stem)
Finally- I have found them... Yes- BRONZE Crypts! I have been trying to get my hands on a truly Bronze Crypt for awhile now. These bronze crypts are smaller but packed with new growth. (Typically I order something called "Bronze" and the stems are bronze- with green leaves-NOT THESE) These Bronze Crypt Wendtii are the real deal. They are the real brown/bronze you are looking for. What is great about these plants is that unlike a lot of other more colorful plants that aren't green, these bronze crypts are super easy to keep.
AS OF 4-21- THESE are "BRONZE CRYPTS" Some are darker in color. Others are more green with a redish "bronze" Stem. (The photos with the rulers and the DFT logo are the exact plants!)
THEY ARE WELL ROOTED and grown under water!
The darker colors are awesome and make wonderful contrast in your aquarium. I have found that using a green foreground with these bronze crypts give the tank both a nice contrast AND gives the look more depth to a tank. Like most Crypts- there is a chance these Bronze Crypt Wendtii could melt back on you. Not to worry- they will bounce back stronger than ever- with leaves made for YOUR tanks conditions.
(Note: these haven't melted for me, but it could happen).
If it were my tank, I would take one portion and break it up into like three smaller plants and spread them out a few inches apart. The plant will like this as it will give it more space to spread out and ultimately give you a fuller look.... Or if you are lazy- just slap it down as one big plant. Either way- with these Bronze Crypts- you win!
Try to add some more color to your Mid-Ground. Try a Red Crypt Wendtii
Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Difficulty: I give the Bronze crypt a 1.5. It needs to be given a little space to take off. Other than that these are as easy as any beginner plant
Lighting: Prefers Moderate light but can handle a low light tank
(As of 11-24 these DO NOT COME IN POTS- We have had them planted in our tanks. You will be getting a bare root plant with 4-5 leaves)
Received quite a bit of this. They seem to be very happy!
I did not expect as much of this as I got. I think I got a bonus plant, which is awesome! It was delivered safely and was very well packed and hydrated.
I ordered some plants after Christmas for myself. One plant I ordered was this bronze crypt. To my ultimate surprise Dustin packed me an extra!
Not only are these 2 gorgeous and truly bronze plants, my pleasure was doubled with a bonus plant!
Dustin is a great guy and he really takes care of his customers.
I highly recommend him and his team for all your planted aquarium needs!
It’s like having a good buddy in the industry. They really strive to help their customers get what they want and need.
Keep up the great work guys!
The colors on this crypt are insane. i didn't think truly bronze crypts were a real thing, every time I had ever seen a crypt labeled as 'bronze' the actual bronze was always just on the stem or underside of the leaves. Dusty's bronze crypts however are the REAL DEAL! They're actually completely bronze and stand out beautifully. Definitely a great focal point plant for the mid ground and super hardy.
These are so damn nice. The colors are awesome. They're healthy and ready to rock. One of many purchases from Dustin that are every bit as advertised. Thank you!
