Cryptocoryne wendtii is one of the most popular and long-kept plants in the entire aquarium hobby. It is a great plant for beginners, but can also be used for very advanced aquascaping projects!


Cryptocoryne wendtii is likely the most well-known crypt and is native throughout Southeast Asia. It has been developed into countless varieties of color and size. This bronze variety is excellent for the forground and midground of the aquarium. Bronze Cryptocoryne wendtii will thrive in the low-light, low-tech aquarium. It will show the most bronze coloration when kept in iron-rich substrate.


Bronze Cryptocoryne wendtii is slow and steady in growth. It can adapt to a reasonable variety of water parameters as long as it does not have to endure sudden changes. Like most Cryptocoryne species, it should be allowed plenty of time to “settle in” and should not be moved constantly. Once established, it will reproduce by sending runners that will grow into new plants.


CO2 supplementation is beneficial, but not necessary for this plant. It will also benefit from supplemental fertilizers and nutrient-rich substrate.

No aquarium plant distributor/nursery/wholesaler/retailer can or will guarantee their plants to be 100% snail free. We can not guarantee our plants will be snail free.

Shipping Schedule for this service

UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday

Current Handling Time:

1-9 business days

Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

Shipping Rate

Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
