Common Name: Rotala Wallichii
Rotala Wallichii is a popular stem plant with thin fragile leaves that can create luscious forests of green and red when grown in large clusters. High lighting, Co2, and fertilization dosing will turn the leaves a mix of vibrant pink, red, orange and yellow hues. Pictures show difference between submerged form vs. emersed form of this plant. When planting, it is best to keep stems in large clusters to create a nice bushy background effect.
