I'm wondering if anyone in the community has the Rotala Singapore variety, which I prefer. If not, then my second choice would be Rotala Rondifolia. I have a 90G so I would appreciate a substantial amount of stems. I prefer buying from another local aquarist because I would like already acclimatized submerged plants. Willing to pay.

Cheers!

LF: Rotala "Singapore" or Rotala Rotundifolia or rotala butterfly mini

Rotala rotundafolia is a very fast growing stem plant and can be cumbersome to maintain. If your looking for a plant that will make nice grassy stands, you may want to look at Potamogeton gayi http://tropica.com/en/plants/plantdetails/Potamogetongayi(142TC)/18778.

JMHO.

Hi Stuart. Thanks for the reminding me of how fast rotala rotundifolia (my bad on the spelling) grows. I didn't think about that, but I don't mind fast-growing either, preferrably with a bit of red. I am looking for more the hedged bushy stem plant forest appearance than grassy though. Cheers!

So Stuart & every other planted tank enthusiast,

I sold off my stem plants and couldn't wait, so I impulsively bought rotala wallichi. I've heard only good things about this plant and know that it is very demanded. *fingers crossed* I'm not a beginner, but let's see if my softwater, kessil-lit, CO2 injected 90G will facilitate a thriving forest of these beauties!
