Rotala wallichii is a demanding plant that develops red shoot tips in good light conditions.
The most decorative effect can be achieved by planting a large number of stems in a group. Rotala walichii is good as background and midground plant and suitable even for small aquariums, because it is easy to prune if it grows too tall. CO2 addition boosts growth considerably. It also prefers soft, slightly acidic water.
- If received invitro, please remove all gel from the roots. Where possible we try and ship without pots or rockwool. Due to them being non-biodegradable we prefer to propagate in an environmentally conscious way.
- CO2 will generally yield better growth rates.
- Stable water conditions are a must, changes should occur over a period of time in order to reduce chances of melting etc.
