Rotala Vietnam HRa LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT
Rotala "Vietnam" can be used in the mid to background of any layout, especially in those aquascapes which depend heavily on the use of stem plants. This species can form an excellent contrast to both red and green colored plants.
The culture of Rotala sp. "Vietnam" is like that of Rotala wallichii. Moderate lighting will result in a mostly green plant with red stems, while intense lighting will help bring out a pleasant golden hue. CO2 supplementation is necessary for good results. Phosphate should be kept moderate to rich (1-2 ppm) to encourage larger stems, shorter internodes, and redder coloration. Iron and micronutrient dosing is also critical for the well-being of this species. Stems that are deficient in iron will became small and pale, and extreme deficiencies can result in the death of the meristem.
The healthy growth habit of this form can be compared to that of Rotala wallichii. Rotala sp. 'Vietnam' grows vertically and produced many lateral shoots, especially if long shoots can grow along the water surface. Propagate like other stem plants: Make cuttings of top or lateral shoots and re-plant in the substrate.
