In order to avoid influencing the outcome, I'm going to save the reason I'm asking until I have some IDs.... so without further ado...
Ah, I appreciate that, explains a lot. I was never entirely sure what the 'sp.' was about. In any case, I bought 10 stems of what I'm nearly certain is what is actually rotala sp. green on APC yesterday, so it should help to be able to see this stuff right next to it.svenboogie, when something is phrased as [genus name] sp. "description" it means that it isnt an official recognized species name, its just a variant or cultivar. So if i grow a rotala that looks a little different than other rotalas, i can call it "rotala sp. 'super green crazy pancake-leaf'" if i want to. I would think of a better name than that, but that was just to illustrate the point i was trying to make.
also, Rotala indica is a very deep red plant, and its pretty uncommon. R. rotundifolia is often sold as R. indica, so that could be what you have.
Well, They were sold to me by lego from his 20L tank a while back. Unless he accidentally threw in a different Rotala sp. in there lol? I think that could be the issue with mine. It looks very nice though. :biggrin: What do you guys think? Here's a pic:I was under the impression that "sp. green" generally was used to indicate that it should stay green even under high light... hmm...
Adam,When I first started up my 20, I had sp. "Green" and sp. "Green Narrow" both, and when they were next to each other, the difference was obvious. I've since removed all of the sp. "Green", so what's headed your way now is all sp. "Green Narrow".
Nick, I'm at a total loss as to that Rotala. When I sent yours, sp. "Green Narrow" was the only Rotala in the tank (other than the true R. indica (ex-Ammania "Bonsai)). Someday, I'll have to get a stem of that stuff from you and throw it back into my 20L to see what happens, cause the true R. Green should stay green no matter what.
Ooooohhhhh...now I remember. Yeah, I bet it's R. rotundifolia then. I got lots of that.Adam,
I got these way back before you sent me the previous R. green package. You sent these to me when we traded for the bag of Crypt sp. (unknown)... remember? You had a nice mixture of all kinds of plants including that little erio 'red' australia. So I'm pretty positive it aint R. green narrow but it's a nice looking Rotala tho so I'm not complaining.
I'd be glad to swap some later when I get more from these plants. I'll let you know bro.
