Recently I’ve bought Cryptocoryne wendtii ‘Green Gecko’ on eBay, now I am waiting for delivery. I am really looking forward to this bright green Crypt.
A month or two ago, I’ve tried C. lingua, but its condition on the arrival wasn’t that good and I was unable to grow it. Anyway, I think I’ll give it a try one more time.
I have decided to lower the humidity… mainly because these crypts are “overgrowing” with too soft and thin leaves. I am looking forward to see the results (humidity lowered 14 days ago). So far no change, but lets wait for young leaves.

Now it is a bit overgrowing (above)… Here (below) are photos in lower humidity (when i bought it).

And recently planted C. indonesii (planted 13 days ago…). I am really curious about this one.
