pretty sure they are wenditti. with the experience i had with them there always have been slow growing but once they start to grow they grow... the first 4 plants i had in my tank were crypts wenditti and i cut the roots cause they get like 8-10 inches long in like a month

so if all of them are wendtii's, i really suggest strongly that you go and get some other varieties...crypts are my favorite aquarium plants after trying a whole bunch of different ones, i always go back to crypts...

Slow is par for parva. :D

Mine has always taken a month or more to settle in before putting out new leaves and then maybe one a month or so. Getting baby plants takes months and months.

Great little plant.

Guppy,

If you're willing to spend the money parva can make a great foreground. I once had close to 40 of them in one of my tanks a few years ago and they did their job well. Unfortunately that area was only about 8 square inches........

Best,
Phil
