TCulture Rotala fujian
Rotala Fujian is a form of Rotala Rotundifolia that was found in Fujian province of southeastern China. The submerged leaves are relatively broad compared to other Rotala Rotundifolia species. Rotala Fujian have a slight orange hue to the leaves, especially at the growing tip. When grown under ideal conditions, such as high light and with CO2, these oranges are greatly intensified.
Rotala Fujian grows in a vertical pattern, thus we recommend placing Rotala Fujian as a background or midground plant. The extra pop of orange will grab attention and bring depth to any aquascape. Rotala Fujian can be grown in both submerged and emersed conditions, although a transition period will be required. To keep Rotala Fujian nice and compact, regular trimming will need to be performed. The plant trimmings can then be replanted as a form of propagation.
