Description: Quickly becoming a favourite amongst hobbyists, Rotala Blood red is famous for how easily its colour is realised. Most red aquarium plants require incredibly high lighting, Co2 injection and nitrate limitation. This Rotala variant, however, only requires medium lighting and Co2. Without Co2 its colour will still be red but not as dark as most desire. It is new to Australia and very fast growing making it perfect for the background of an aquascape.
Difficulty: As with all aquarium plants, Co2 injection and appropriate fertilisation are recommended for optimal health and growth. Rotala blood red will grow well without Co2 injection, but its colour will not be as vibrant.
