The original title of the thread was "Rotala indica "Pink"". Rotala indica and Rotala rotundifolia are two different plants.
If we take a moment to reexamine my first post:
Rotala indica "Pink" implies that there is another variety of Rotala indica. I am pretty sure there is not.
The plant you have Anthony is Rotala rotundifolia. According to Kasslemann, Rotala indica really isn't very common in the hobby at all.
My comments were initially about Rotala indica a plant of which there is only one known cultivar, that being Rotala indica. I have never seen Rotala indica, never mind Rotala indica "Pink".
I told Anthony the plant he had was Rotala rotundifolia. I probably should have told him the plant he had was more than likely Rotala rotundifolia, since I haven't actually seen the plant he actually has.
However, I am not sure where I argued there was a single form of Rotala rotundifolia? I have you guys coming at me from all sides about Rotala rotunidfolia pointing out to me me the different varieties you have growing and have read about and I have never disputed that fact! There are two varieties in my oriental aquarium book! Where did you guys come up with my arguing a single variety of rotala rotundifolia?
I only disputed the creations of plant names. I am glad Shalu has seen my point on that subject!
From a practical view point, without a real proper name, how would you expect people to ask questions on a specific cultivar, like, "How do I get my supposed-to-be-red-leaved-rotala-rotundifolia to look red?
From a practical standpoint, I would expect someone to ask "How do I get my Rotala rotundifolia/Rotala indica (if they actually have that plant) redder?"
I would love some of the plant that was and is different than the "regular" rotundifolia for myself!
