CO2 and light. needs more of both than some other rotalas, like r. rotundifolia or r. vietnam.

So I'll give it a try If worse comes to worse I should have a runner from my jungle val over to replace it within a week or so
IDK but I dumped my Rotala macrandra outdoors in a dirt tank and it didn't care. It just grow and grow. :3

This plant actually is quite common but its PAIN IN THE BUTT. Unless you're doing high tech with IE dosing and willing to watch everyday to check for fe problems this plant won't even root.

Centromochlus Looks more like an Ammannia species to me. Perhaps A. gracilis?

HybridHerp good luck, thats a nice pink one you have there at least
so far I haven't had luck with that plant but we'll see what the future brings

Sethjohnson30 Looks like it's rotala macrandra

Identification please

OK so I was at the LFS and I saw some red and I've been dying to get some red into my tank so I bought it....

Now I'd like to know what it is so I can properly care for it and get it to propagate
