Rotala Variant

Postby scientist0724 » Mon Mar 09, 2020 9:00 am

I found this Rotala as a hitchhiker in the pond section of a garden center. Cavan says it's a Rotala rotundifolia variant, but I'm wondering which one. It's really slow growing in my tank, has two and sometimes three leaves at each node. The stems get a pinkish to deep red and an almost pink to burgundy color in high light.

Any ideas?
