Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Pink Panther' is a cultivar of Cryptocoryne wendtii. Full sized adult plant leaves are around 10cm long, which makes it great for mid/foreground placement. The leaves are distinctively pink which makes it hard to match in many aquascapes. It does stand out a lot in most aquascapes and works well as tonal contrast to clusters of red plants.
It is a slow growing plant that is relatively undemanding. However, the tissue culture form that it often comes in is delicate and many hobbyists fail to adapt it in that form, hence its reputation for being difficult. It can take as long as 3 to 5 months for a baby plantlet to grow to full size. As a slow grower, the main factor for success with this plant is stable conditions over the long run.
The leaves take on better coloration with stronger light and good all round fertilization (and yes, carbon dioxide injection). More red/blue spectrum helps pigmentation. With less intense lighting, or less than optimal growth conditions, some of the leaves may be olive colored rather than pink.
