"green" is anextremely versatile plant. The leaves vary much accordingto morphology and colour, and the colour ranges fromlight-green to red-brown depending on water and lightconditions. The same individual grown under differentenvironmental conditions changes so much that it ishardly recognized as the same species.
It is beyond any doubt the easiest plant in the aquarium, and in contrast to common belief it thrives well in calcareous water. Though Cryptocoryne wendtii "green" benefits from arich substrate, excessive iron can cause crop failures and lavish CO2 addition can also cause 'Crypt Melting'. We recommend to remove older leaves before planting as they don't contribute to the overall energy supply to the plant anymore and simply removing them ensure a better performance of the plant in the new environment.
