A beautiful fine leave plant that is medium hard to grow, it requires a well run tank with good C02, NPK, TE & Fe and soft water to bring out its glory. Very similar to Rotala wallichii and veitnam this plant is a good C02 indicator plant, it will become very ratty looking if gas is inadequate. Propagation is easy, it will produce many side shoots, top and replant, leaving the bottom half intact for additional stems.
