This fast-growing and hardy species of Rotala hails from Sri Lanka (former Ceylon,) where it grows in shallow water with plenty of light. It is a stem plant, with 6 to 8 stems each featuring many narrow, light-green leaves, which can develop a pinkish hue under especially strong light. Its growth shape gives it a full and busy, but “light” appearance. This makes it good as a “neutral” species for the background, where it can accentuate red plants.
It can be trimmed or propagated frequently, and will consistently grow back to its full size without needing to be replanted, so long as it gets enough light and CO2 injection. Overall, it is a simple and neutral species of Rotala that can provide a firm foundation for many aquarium setups.
