Rotala wallichii is a stunning pink, red color plant with needle-shaped leaves that originates from soft, slightly acidic waters in South-Eastern Asia. Even though it is not quite easy in cultivation it is a highly popular plant. High lighting, Co2, and added fertilizers will turn the leaves a mix of vibrant pink, red, orange, and yellow hues, and will definitely help this plant to thrive!


NOTE: Each portion is about 5-10 3-6 inch stems cut fresh from our personal aquarium :)
