Among the various forms of Rotala rotundifolia, which one is the reddest when grown under the same conditions? Is it 'Colorata'?

Singapore and Colorata are quite similar in regards to color from what I've seen. Singapore might get a touch redder, but then again it may just have been the tank's conditions.

Thank you so much for that. Didn't even know there is a 'Singapore' variation. Just did some massive google readings on both variations. Since they both share the same lineage as the ubiquitous Rotala rotundifolia, do all three share the same growth rate and ease of care as well? They're not fussy like the various forms of R. macrandra right?

I am thinking of mixing them with my existing R. rotundifolia stand and would rather not have uneven, raggedy growths. For such a common plant, this thing is so satisfying to grow. :laugh2:

Thank you once again.
