Crypt Wendtii growth habit and growing environment and distribution
Crypt Wendtii is the green form of P. Wendy. Its ecological habits are almost the same apart from that the leaf color is different from that of its parent species. Even under the environment of strong light, the leaf color may turn from green to brown, so it is often regarded as the parent species by mistake. Crypt Wendtii is cultivated in the same way as P. Wendy has the same particular need for calcium, so it may prefer living in the hard water to living in the soft water. Of course, it's easier to adapt to the environment than Wenty and easy to grow, it can be grown without carbon dioxide, and it grows faster and healthier. Besides, adding too much iron may inhibit its growth, so iron fertilizer should not be added properly. Crypt Wendtii is best done by cutting old leaves before planting to stop them from consuming energy, and make sure that new plants will grow faster and avoid getting the disease.
