Rotala Wallichii - Whorly Rotala


The name Rotala Wallichii came from a Swedish Botanist called Carl von Linné, also known as Carolus Linnaeus in the mid-17th century. It is an elegant stem plant found in soft, acidic bodies of water in southeast Asia. It is much more often found growing submerged and in deeper water than related species. 

A wine-colored plant, an herb with prominent spikes that develop purple and pink flowers along its color-changing stems. Although not the easiest of aquatic plants to grow, Rotala Wallichii is one of the most popular, commonly available red stem plants in the hobby.

Rotala Wallichii existed in Asian tropical waters, along China, India, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, and Taiwan. The red-stemmed "bunch plant" is rare and fragile.  Aquarists then introduced it to the USA and now being distributed worldwide, especially in the Dutch and Scandinavian territories. We can also find these plants in a submerged state in moist areas like shorelines and rice paddies in Southeast Asia.

Rotala Wallichii is a perfect addition of an aquatic plant to your new aquarium. The choice is for you to decide which Rotala species is best to fascinate visually.
