Rotala Wallichii, sometimes referred to as Whorly Rotala, originates from Southeast Asia. It exhibits reddish to brown to pink color delicate or needle-like looking leaves. This plant looks best when planted in groups. It can be used both as a midground or background plant. R. Wallichii grows fast but may need regular trimmings to keep it nice and tidy. The plants need moderate to high lighting and will appreciate regular fertilization. When kept under good conditions and planted in groups, this plant will provide spectacular and contrasting pinkish/reddish background to your aquarium.
Been in my tank less than a week and already has visible growth. Amazing!
The tip of the stems were emergent growth but the aquatic form burst through incredibly quickly! Looks lovely and speaks volumes about the care taken for these plants.
good looking plants a little sparse
