Description

A beautiful delicate Rotala variant from eastern Brazil. Originally imported as Rotala sp. "Araguaia" and R. pusilla, it is probably the first variant of the variable species R. mexicana that became popular in the aquarium hobby. It is characterised by upright brownish-red stems and light green to reddish lineal pointy curved leaves. It is not quite easy in cultivation. Make sure it has sufficient light, an unshaded place and a constant CO2 and nutrient supply.

Rotala mexicana is a stem plant relatively new to the hobby.
As it is found in many tropical and subtropical regions of the earth, e.g. in South America, Western Africa, Australia and Japan, it is not really surprising that this species is very variable. In botanic literature, plants with large areas of distribution often have several synonyms - as does Rotala mexicana. One of them is Rotala pulsilla, under which name this plant is also known in the hobby.

The first R. mexicana variety that went into trade originated from South America and was offered by the Japanese company Rayon Vert. It was first listed as Rotala sp. 'Araguaia'. Varieties from Australia and other regions are still rare and difficult to obtain.

The South-American variety R. mexicana 'Araguaia' is a plant that either thrives or dies off. (read more)
