Rotala sp. vietnam (Anybody have any for SALE?)


I think this is one of our member's tank but I can't remember who to ask personally.

Is the plant shown in the first 8 seconds of the video Mayaca fluviatilis or Rotala wallichii?

UPDATE (4/11): I found out that it is Rotala sp. vietnam. Now I would like to purchase this plant or Rotala wallichii. If you have any for sale or for a trade please PM me Thanks!

Nevertheless they look too similar, like twin sisters huh?

I want to get either one of these plants as my background in my 17G tank. Should I go with both or just one?



It will be a NON-CO2 injected tank so which one would do better?

I'd say one or the other just so you don't get trimmings mixed up if you ever sell them and what not. Personally thats what I would do since I don't see a reason to use both if they look so similar

Great suggestion Jeff. I think their colors might be the same at the top but as far as a stem/leaf shape goes, there should be obvious differences right? In the event that I get both (if I could find anyone to sell any on here, lol) then I would put them in "designated" areas and if they grow out of their zone then I'll do a trim and RAOK it or sell it for cheap just to keep things in order

Pm sent.

I've grown both of them and like wallichii better. The nodes are more compact, but that was with co2 and high light. I also liked the color better, more of an orange than pinkish for the vietnam. I guess in a non co2 enviroment, like most rotalas, growth wont be as compact and just stay on the greener side.
