This delicate, very small-leaved stem plant is a selection of Rotala macrandra. It is also known as Rotala sp. 'Pearl'. It resembles Rotala macrandra ?Mini Type 2? but differs by shorter leaves curved downward.
Strong lighting and good CO2 and nutrient supply are recommendable. It's best placed as group in the foreground or midground, especially in nano tanks.
Please note:As well as Rotala macrandra 'Mini Type 2', 'Pearl' is likely a mutant of Rotala macrandra 'Green'. It occasionally develops shoots that look like the wild type form of 'Green', with larger leaves and growing considerably faster. They should be cut off as soon as they emerge in order to preserve the typical 'Pearl' form. Also for propagation by cuttings, only shoots with the typical small leaves should be selected.
This dwarfish Rotala macrandra selection looks best as a group in the foreground or midground, especially in nano aquariums.
