Description

Introduced as Rotala sp. "Araguaia", this quite small stem plant from Brazil turned out as the first Cuphea species in the aquarium hobby. Under intense lighting the upper sides of the leaves develop a bright red to orange red coloration while the stem remains green.

Much light, good CO2 and nutrient supply and rather soft water are recommendable.

This plant grows strictly vertical. Best placed as group in the midground, it makes a nice colour accent.

This plant was brought into the hobby as Rotala sp. "Araguaia". Only recently (2010), after it was brought to bloom, Cavan Allen was able to identfiy the true species of this alleged Rotala species by comparing it with samples from the Smithsonian Herbarium (Washington, D.C.). The genus Cuphea holds around 260 species and is distributed in the American tropics and subtropics. Like Rotala, it belongs to the family of Lythraceae. Most species are terrestrial semi-shrubs, like the cigar plant (Cuphea ignea), which has long been in cultivation as an ornamental plant, and false heather (C. hyssopifolia). There are only a few aquatic Cuphea species, and C. anagalloidea is the first plant of the genus that is cultivated in aquaria. This species is endemic in Brazil, where it is distributed in the north, east, and south-east (Pará, Tocantins, Bahia, Goiás, Minas Gerais). (read more)
