Rotala sp. 'Wayanad'


Rotala species are very popular and often colorful stem plants for the mid- to background in the aquarium. Also pure green species like the new Rotala variety 'Wayanad', is an enrichment for the biotope in the living space. The variety, which probably belongs to the species rotundifolia, is named after the place of origin in the state of Kerala/ India. It is a very good growing plant and easy to cultivate and impresses with its bright yellow-green coloring. The leaf itself is somewhat narrower than other varieties from the species and thus appears to be very graceful.
