This beautiful variety of Cryptocoryne wendtii is only found in the
river Mi Oya. It has characteristic red-brown, slightly hammered leaves. Many
Cryptocorynes can grow at high temperatures. In the wild this plant is found in
streams with a temperature of more than 30 degrees C. At even higher
temperatures the light intensity must be higher or the days longer. See other
Cryptocorynes for further information.
