Mislabeled crypt at petsmart

I picked up what I thought was Crypt Wendtii Green at petsmart a couple weeks ago. It wasn't in the tubes that they have, but was sealed in a bag with some gel around the roots. It looked in good condition and I ended up getting 4 plants out of the bag for $7 or $8. Looking around at plant profiles today I realized I'm 99% sure what I really got was Crypt Parva. I"ll post pictures tonight or tomorrow for confirmation.

I decided to try Crypts and see if they would grow in my meager lighting (2 18" t8's for 55g). Seeing that these are probably one of the higher lighting requirement Crypts I'm not very hopeful. I gave a root tab between each pair and they have staid green so far. We'll see how it goes.
