Rotala Wallichi is characterized by its delicate, slender leaves that are arranged in a compact and bushy formation. The leaves are a brilliant shade of pink or red, with a green margin along the edges. The leaves grow from a compact, branching stem that is easily trimmed to maintain a desired shape or size.
This plant is well-suited to a wide range of water conditions, including hard or soft water, and a pH range of 6.0-7.5. It prefers bright lighting, but will also thrive in low-light conditions.
Rotala Wallichi is often used as a foreground or midground plant in the aquatic environment, as its vibrant colors and bushy growth add a bold and striking contrast to the more subtle colors and textures of other aquatic plants. This plant is also ideal for use in larger aquariums, as its fast growth rate and ability to form dense, lush growth make it a great choice for filling large areas with vegetation.
