Rotala rotundifolia 'Orange Juice'


In 2014, Italian plant-lover Massimo Iannella selected some interestingly colored stems from a patch of Rotala rotundifolia ‘Colorata‘ and propagated the striking orange shoots. This new variety displays a wonderful orangey-red color in the aquarium, and has been given the evocative name ‘Orange Juice‘. As with many aquarium plants that are cultivated above water, its true beauty only becomes apparent in the aquarium. Strong lighting creates an unbelievable color spectrum.
