Bronze Crypt Wendtii (Brown Leaf Stem)
NOTE: The plant that you will receive looks like the photos labeled "AS OF 9.21"
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.
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
These plants arrived in beautiful shape and took right to my aquarium without a hitch. They have put out some strong roots.
Plant in great shape, had a bunch of separate plants each bundle, very happy.
Love this little plant it is so pretty never seen a bronze one before I hope it does well. I have mostly all Crypts in my tank I really like them
Plants arrived in good time these arrived look a little sad at the moment. They are planted will update later with their condition
Again, just got them today. Looks a bit pale from the quick trip from there to here. But the plant is strong with good roots and is going to add so good color to my scape in the particular tank I choose it to go in. My whole order of plants was amazing. I have been so disappointed with a lot of online orders with plants that have not melt but total rot and have to fight to get some money back. I really was not disappointed at all.
