Cryptocoryne Wendt Water Trumpet
Are you want to create a great looking tank and try your hand to aquascaping? The Cryptocoryne Wendt has always been a great start to your planted tank.
Cryptocoryne Wendt is a small variety of Cryptocoryne from Sri Lanka, which has a beautiful, slightly fluted leaf. The leaves become dark olive-brown with violet underside. Like many other Cryptocorynes, the leaf color and shape depends largely on environmental conditions in the aquarium.
Most crypt plants were originally found in fast-flowing limestone bed streams or rivers. These plants need high levels of calcium to thrive in a tank environment, as well as CO2, phosphate, iron, and nitrate. Although they are easier to grow submersed, they will also grow emersed and can produce flowers above the water. Water trumpet can be planted into the substrate or attached to a rock or piece of driftwood with a cotton thread or fishing wire.
Water trumpets propagate through runners, which can be cut and replanted into the substrate if desired. For good coverage, plant individual stems about one inch apart. Water trumpets can also be planted in bunches as long as all the roots have exposure to nutrients from the substrate.
