This Rotala variety looks very similar to the more popular Rotala wallichii, but grows a little faster and is somewhat easier to grow. Under good light the plant develops a red stem and golden leaves. If light is less than optimal the leaves will be green. Phosphates and micronutrients should be provided at good levels.
- Origin - Distribution:
- Southeast Asia
The plant branches easily and once it takes root it does better if undisturbed. Trim the top but leave the rooted base there and you will be rewarded with a nice looking, heavy pearling bush in your aquarium.
Rotala sp. ‘Vietnam’ looks best near broad leaved green or red plants. As the stem is not strong, avoid placing near the filter outlet or the plant will bend with the flow.
We are after as many aquarium plant images that we can get, doing so will assist us in completing the aquarium plant database. https://barrreport.com/threads/aquatic-plant-images-wanted.14374/Dismiss Notice
