Rotala Vietnam

As its name suggests, Rotala Vietnam originates from Vietnam. Similarily to other Rotala species, this plant's appearance will be impacted by the aquarium conditions. Under good and bright light and with proper fertilization, Rotal Vietnam will produce dark red stems with finer leaves in deep green color.

Care & Maintenance

Rotala Vietnam is tolerant of a wide range of water conditions. CO2 and heavy fertilization are not required. However, if provided with good light and properly fertilized, Rotala Vietnam will grow faster and more compact.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 72-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Background

Rotala Vietnam will provide the biggest visual impact when planted in groups of several stems in the background of the aquarium. Once the plant reaches the top of the aquarium, Rotala should be trimmed to keep it tidy and the cuttings can be replanted. This task is made easier with proper aquascaping tools.

    Plants were well packaged and arrived alive and green. They are thriving in my angel/ discus tank! I might have to buy some more...

    Very nice plant and very resilient. It was all crinkled up when it came and by the next morning it looked great!

    It arrived alive and in good condition. It has only been in my aquarium for a few days but i am loving it. I don’t have Co2 so i can’t wait to see how these guys turn out in a long run

    Thank you for these beautifully grown plants. The bunches (fresh cuttings, unrooted), were robust and healthy. Stems were not at all spindly, and had rich color. My package even arrived early. Extremely impressed with your products and will be returning for sure. Recommending your site to friends. 10/10

    Plants seem to be doing well. I'd say at least 50% of the leaves were damaged. I'm assuming this accused during harvesting because packaging was fantastic. It was as though someone took an empty soup can and pressed down on the leaves. Thats the only way I can think of describing it. But in that being said, they seem to be recovering well.

    I got these hoping they would be tall enough to hide my heater, and they are! (heater is about a foot tall) Great quality!
