Description

A fine-leaved, relatively small, reddish to pink rather demanding stem plant. It is most decorative when planted in a group of many stems. It is also suitable as foreground plant and for smaller tanks, given that it is trimmed at the right time. The addition of CO2 enhances growth significantly. It prefers soft slightly acidic water.

Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails.

Rotala wallichii is an elegant stem plant originating from soft, slightly acidic waters in South-Eastern Asia. Its inflorescence has bright purple flowers. Even though it is not quite easy in cultivation it is a highly popular plant.

R. wallichii needs lots of light, CO2 fertilisation and a well-balanced supply of nutrients to grow well. The light intensity should at least be 0.5 watts per litre in order for it to attain intensive colours and to support growth. A good supply of CO2, either with bio CO2 or a system using pressure bottles is indispensable. Rotala wallichii grows best if the nitrate level never falls to zero but does not exceed 10 to 15 mg per litre either. A high phosphate content of 1-2 mg per litre is preferred, as well as a good supply of iron and micronutrients. (read more)
