Rotala macrandra is an unusually beautiful aquarium plant, but unfortunately it is very demanding. It needs very good light to develop its beautiful red colour, and CO2 addition and soft water are vital to ensure reasonable growth. It is most beautiful in groups, but do not plant individual shoots too close because this will prevent light reaching the lower leaves. To ensure good colour there must be sufficient micronutrients in the water.

Growth:   Fast
Height:  25-55cm
Width:   2-7cm
Light demands:  > 1 Watt per liter
CO2 demands:   15-25 mg per liter

I held off giving a review of this very fussy plant just to see how things went. I need not have worried, these were lovely stems, and are growing and colouring up nicely.

Lovely plant. Difficult to handle as per the 1-2-3 instructions as so friable/fragile, but showing growth already.

they came in a fairly bad state the stems were quite wilted and difficult to plant I have used 1 2 grow plants in the past which were fine but these ones seemed of poorer quality than others
