    Hey friends- I am not sure where I picked up these few sprigs of what I assume is some kind of rotala.

    I would like to find some more of it for the big tank- can’t anyone help me ID which species it is?

    Thanks!

    It is Rotala rotundifolia.

    Best regards,

    Thanks- I have never had it look this nice before- must be because it is near the surface and getting great light.

    Many LFS label rotala rotundifolia mistakely as rotala indica. Rotala rotundifolia has pointy leaves and tends to grow at an angle whereas rotala indica has round leaves and grow vertically.
