| | Rotala verticillaris
Here's one that I haven't seen up on this site yet. It has been in the hobby for some time now.....esp in Japan. It is still rather expensive last time I checked ($10-15 per stem), but others may know better. Thus far it seems to be on the easier side although I have heard some reports of people having a little trouble (expected with rotalas)........way easier than mexicana in my experince! In terms of rotalas, it is a slow grower, actually in terms of any stem plant. It seems to grow keikis off the side when you change the water drastically. The color is bright green, leaves are about as thick as pusilla but way longer and many more per whorl about the same number per whorl as vietnam or hippuris but I haven't sacrificed a plant to count yet. It gets about 1 1/2 - 2" in diameter.
BY FAR MY FAVORITE ROTALA EVER!
Hope you enjoy
Any feedback or comments, please post!
A big thanks goes out to the person who got this for me......you know who you are!
