how difficult is rotala wallichi to grow?
ihave high light and co2 injected with EI dosing

20 long
finnex ray2 2-3 inches above water line
co2 injected and flourite substrate.

does this plant grow horizontal if there is too much light? ihad a few rotala species and they all began to grow side ways and not straight up. Rotala Wallichi looks like a real nice plant that iwould try to grow jn my tank

If your dosing ei you should already be dosing some iron right?

I dose pps pro in a medium tech tank and this grow well for me. It could me more compact but it's a beautiful plant.

well iguess in the micros should be some iron in it. my only concern is that this plant will grow sideways. ihad 2 rotala species plants and from having high light they began to grow horizontally and not straight lol

They make a GH titration test kit. Most LFS sell it for $5-7. This is one of the few species where the hardness of the water matters.
