Really? I ask cause I also got Cuba from the same source, and it looks different (the stem isn't red). I do, however, think that it is maybe some L. inclinata varient that ISN'T cuba, cause I do have cuba and pantanal in this tank now as well.......

So confusing lol

Nope, its definitely R. Bangladesh. I got a closer look at it today and compared it to some more Cuba that I got today, and it was very very different. The top part is very condensed but the bottom looks exactly like every other case of R. Bangladesh I've seen through google and all.

I put it in a place where it can grow as tall and weedy as it wants, so the progress on this plant will be exciting.

Can you get a clearer picture of just that and not other similar stems nearby?

It doesn't have red stems at all. That was what made me think it's not it.

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org

It doesn't? I saw red stems when I searched on google, and this has a red stem.
I'm growing it out behind a black background, when it is tall enough and adjusted better I'll post a pic.

Looking again at your OP I take back what I said. You do have Rotala sp. 'Bangladesh'. Sorry for the confusion.

This is the correct reference picture. Jeff got it directly from the guy who brought it back to the States.

Looking at a few others it does appear to be correct and have reddish stems. Huh, it never grew that color for me. I only have it emersed now so couldn't say for sure.

This one looks correct too.

Yah, it will be interesting to see how this grows for me.

For some reason, it reminds me of a Japanese Maple....totally unrelated I know.

You can let it float, but I personally would plant it. Just stick it deeper into the substrate.

I got confused w/ R. Bangladesh and R. Najenshan recently.
I bought R. Bangladesh from Aquabid and R. Najenshan from TPT. The Bangladesh didnt have much trouble adopting to my water while Najenshan had taken about a month to adopt. It begun to have new shoots and just I realized the Najenshan I bought was actually not the correct species.

This is Rotala Najenshan from Goggle.

http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=mc...tala+najenshan


Below is Rotala Bangladesh I got from Aquabid. The leaves are more denser on top. it has a red stems. But maybe because of my intense lighting.



I will post the other plant that I got wrong ID for Najenshan.

I found R Bangladesh listing on e b a y. Item number: 180806098844
It also mentioned probably a Rotala Mexicana variety.
