Originating from South East Asia, Rotala wallichii is a fairly demanding plant however given good light will develop most attractive red shoot tips from the plant. We recommend that you plant in large groups to gain the most dramatic and decorative effect. An ideal foreground plant suitable for nano aquariums and can be maintained by occasional trimming.

Rotala walichii is also good as background and midground plant because it is easy to prune if it grows too tall. CO2 addition boosts growth considerably. It also prefers soft, slightly acidic water.

Plants looked nice and healthy on arrival. They perked up overnight once planted in the tank. Growing well just waiting for the pink tips to appear

As always arrived in beautiful condition, on the day it was due, snail and algae free and in one week have already bushed up and doubled in height.

This grows quite slowly and is not yest as tall as I thought it would be, but it is under strong lighting. As with all plants from AE, it arrived in excellent condition and I was able to get several plants from the one pot
