Rotala sp. "Cambodia" is a magnificent fine-leaved stem plant that is still relatively rare and little known. The trade name suggests that it was introduced from Cambodia. In the meantime it has been identified as a form of Rotala wallichii, but we will keep the name R. sp. "Cambodia" for the time being. It remains to be clarified whether it is the same as Rotala sp. "Enie".
This plant differs from the regular form of Rotala wallichii by its strikingly brown-red stem and is also easier to grow. It differs from the similar Rotala sp. "Vietnam" by shorter leaves and darker, more reddish tones. The shoots grow to over 40 cm long and about 3 cm wide. The soft stem is 1 mm thick and has very fine submerged leaves that are about 2 cm long and 0.6 mm wide. These are olive green to light brown-red, often also coloured in pink tones, and usually stand in whorls of eight at the stem nodes. The distance between the whorls is about 1 cm. The shoots branch moderately.


The requirements of Rotala sp. 'Cambodia' are similar to those of regular Rotala wallichii, the plant is quite fast-growing. Good macro- and micronutrient supply, CO2 addition, rather soft water and plenty of light are recommended. Temperatures of about 22 to 28 °C are beneficial. It is best to plant a group by inserting individual shoots or tufts of a few shoots into the ground with little distance between them. The stand can be easily shaped by pruning, which also promotes branching of the shoots and bushy growth. Propagation is easy by head cuttings and partial cuttings.

This Rotala rarity works best as a dense, about 20 - 40 cm high stand in the midground or background of an aquarium. It attracts attention with its fine texture and striking colours.



Aquasabi is our own brand, under which we offer high-quality products with a very good price-performance ratio. Carefully selected CO2 diffusers, CO2 bubble counters or lily pipes are just some of the items we sell under this brand and which will surely add to the value und the beauty of any aquascape. For this reason, many aquascapers and planted tank enthusiasts use products by Aquasabi.

Besides the good price-performance ratio, our main focus is on the satisfaction of our customers. This is the reason why our doors are always open for those who need help with our products.

When it comes to special aquatic plants, water plants from Aquasabi are just the thing for you. We offer rarities from our own cultivating tanks or import them specifically. These plants are otherwise hard to come by, and most of them cannot be purchased from other shops. We have high quality standards, which make Aquasabi plants a good choice for aquascapers, planted tank enthusiasts and aquatic plant collectors who want to enrich their tanks with rare aquatic plants. Special mosses, particular stem plants, hard-to-come-by ferns or very rare forms of the genus Bucephalandra are only a few of the plants we are proud to offer.
