Rotala rotundifolia 'Ceylon' was originally introduced from Sri Lanka (Ceylon). R. sp. 'Pink' since about 2012 This pretty Rotala rotundifolia form was often used by Takashi Amano for his aquascapes. Since about 2012 it is also called Rotala sp. 'Pink', however this name is also used for a different Rotala rotundifolia variant.
In its submerged form, 'Ceylon' differs from "normal" Rotala rotundifolia by a looser, lighter growth habit. The stems are thinner, darker coloured and tend to grow upward in wide spirals. The internodes are relatively long, the leaves are light green with pink lower side. Under lots of light, the shoot tips can assume light-reddish hues.
The Ceylon Rotala is as easy to care for as "standard" Rotala rotundifolia. It is recommendable as a bush in the midground to background.
Please be aware that the bunch/potted variation of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.

Shipment was super fast and packaging was great as always.
Though i am not 100% satisfied because it had some brown roots, probably rotting, although it did not have foul smell or mushy feeling. Its probably ok for stem plants since they grow fast and root easily.
