    Description

    Rotala macrandra 'Green' is a relatively small, delicate variant of the species R. macrandra quite easy in cultivation. It has become known as R. macrandra "Wavy". Compared with the standard form of R. macrandra, the leaves are relatively small, longer and greener. Under strong lights, they can be wide ovoid and assume nice reddish hues. Trimming the stems ensures a nice bushy growth. If you let Rotala macrandra 'Green' reach the water surface, emerged shoots will develop, with roundish, green, shiny leaves and flower spikes with whitish flowers.

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

    Rotala macrandra 'Green' is a relatively small variety of R. macrandra and quite obviously identical with the plant that has recently gained popularity under the name R. macrandra "Wavy" in Germany.

    A stunning characteristic of this plant is that it looks very different depending on the conditions it grows in. Moderate light leads to its "typical" habit with longish, rather light green leaves and reddish stems. The leaf margins are then distinctly sawed, the leaf tip is obtuse.
    Under more intensive light, though, the leaves attain a reddish hue, and shoots may form whose leaf forms vary from ovate to round with a smooth margin. This modification is quite stable and could easily lead the layman to the conclusion that this plant belongs to an entirely different variety.

    The emersed form has round green leaves on red stems, like the "standard" land form of Rotala macrandra. (read more)
