So, I just love this one plant, and would like some more of it. Just unsure what it is. Lol.


Edit: Looking for Rotala Nanjenshan please.

I thought it might be, but at the same time it looks so much smaller in height, thinner in the leaves but more bushy. Or is it a younger plant?

I thought that one was a high light plant. Or can it grow low/medium?

From the pictures I have seen it is pretty short in comparison. But I don't know much about it though.XD just my observation.

Nanjenshen grows better in high light. Not well in low and medium light. It is specifically identifiable by its thin leaves and slightly orange crowns in high light and CO2.
Rotala indica has shorter and slightly sider leaves - tends to be reddish in high light. It is argued that Rotala Rotundifolia is the same as Indica but I noticed that Rotundifolia tends to be very bushy and pink at the tips where it is closest to the light.

Not the best picture but this is what Rotala Nanjenshen grew out to look like under high light and CO2 when I kept this plant a couple years ago:


Not a hard plant to find. You'll get some!
Free bump!
