You are buying one potted plant. Potted plants are much better to start with as they have their entire root system intact and makes it much better when transplanting.


Planting Instructions

Potted plants are started in rock wool. To plant, remove as much rock wool as possible. Most of the rock wool will pull off. If you have any left and want it off, shake the plants gently by holding it by the roots and shaking in water. Leaving some rock wool will help anchor the plant in your substrate.

To separate the plant into individual plants, grab the stems right above the root and pull gently. The roots should separate if they don't stop pulling and try other stems. Swirling this plant in water will help each plant separate easier. 

Only plant the root in your substrate, not any of the plant itself, or this can cause melting or shock. For more information on planting and caring for your plants, please go here.

Very Nice
This was my first time buying from PAC the service was great. I ordered a variety of plants and the crypt wendtii red I received is healthy and beautiful. Crypt Wendtii is a low growing plant and looks good when planted in front of drift wood or rocks in the foreground or mid-ground. I have a small nano planted tank so I used it as a mid-ground plant. My order was processed quickly and arrived a day earlier than expected. I highly recommend this plant (all crypts are awesome) and PAC for their great plants and service.

Nice color
I have a green wendtii and this make a great contrast to it, love the pinky-red leaves and it makes a great highlight in the tank with my mostly green plants. I received a pot of very healthy plants that were well grown with a great root system and are now thriving in my tank with no melt at all. As always, everything is shipped with the greatest of care which is why this is my first stop when I need plants. Shipping is always so fast I am pleasantly surprised by how fast the package arrives.

Grows Wonderfully
I've had this plant for quite some time now. It grew very full and much hardier than other crypts I've had in the past. Recently got a new plant from it that I potted in another tank.

First time trying out a red plant, and this crypt did not disappoint. The plant I received had at least 20 awesome red leaves, with more growing in. Super strong roots as well. There's been minimal melting so far and its retained the nice red color in my 10 gallon with Nicrew leds.
