Crypt ID?

I just bought a very cheap small pot of Crypt plants from my LFS, but it was only labelled "crypt".




From the pot I have 7 little plants, ranging from 3-5 inches in size. Does anyone know what specific crypt it is and it's care requirements? It's going into a low tech tank with medium lighting and dirt substrate. My other root feeders do extremely well in this tank (tiger lotus, banana lilies and amazon sword)- does this crypt have the same needs?

Looking like crypt wendtii, one of the most common crypts.

With dirt and medium light this plants will grow insane. They love dirt. It is a heavy root feeder. So it will most likely do great in your tank.

It may melt, just what crypts do. But i have never had my wendtiis do it. So it might, or might not melt.

Thanks, I have a feeling that it's a wendtii as well. Fingers crossed that it won't melt in my tank!

It'll probably melt initially (most seem to), but it'll spring back in no time ;)
