Rotala Mexicana "Goias"
Rotala mexicana "Goiás" is one of the few red low-growing foreground plants. It is said to originate from the Brazilian state of Goiás. It was identified as a variant of the extremely variable Rotala mexicana. Even though it has been known to the aquarium hobby in Europe for a few years it is only rarely available and is thus a rarity. Newly placed shoots usually grow flat and creep on the substrate. When the population gets denser, more upright stems will develop. You can keep the population low by cutting it back, or let it grow to a wide bush especially nice in the middle ground of the aquarium. The combination of Rotala mexicana "Goiás" with green stem plants results in a nice colour contrast. This rather small-leaved delicate plant is great for nano tanks, due to its dense leaf structure and carpet-like characteristics. Additionally, this is the only red/yellow hue carpet plant known in aquascapes.
This plant also grows in sandy soil on the Adelaide River floodplain East of Darwin.
This long-leaved, stem plant grows quickly and lushly, and is easy to propagate through cuttings. The stems are reddish, and with how tall the plant grows it makes a great choice for a background. With proper trimming, Rotala Mexicana can form a great hedge effect even in the midground of the aquarium.
