Cryptocoryne wendtii ''brown'' is a beautiful brown variety of
Cryptocoryne wendtii. It is a mistake to believe that Cryptocorynes require
soft water. In large parts of Sri Lanka the water is hard, so Sri Lanka
Cryptocorynes are almost all suitable for hard European water. If the plant is
affected by the so-called ''cryptocoryne disease'', do not remove it from the
aquarium because a few weeks later it will produce new shoots. See other
Cryptocorynes for further information.
