This Rotala is very similar to Ammania sp. 'Bonsai' and it is classic aquarium plant. It is interesting that if it grows above the water it has round leaves, but below the surface it develops elongate and thin leaves. Under the strong light, it shows true beautiful red color. A little nitrate levels, but high levels of phosphate and iron help it to produce various color, from pink to yellow.
