Rotala macrandra is an unusually beautiful aquarium plant, but unfortunately it is very demanding.
It needs very good light to develop its beautiful red colour, and CO2 addition and soft water are vital to ensure reasonable growth.
It is most beautiful in groups, but do not plant individual shoots too close because this will prevent light reaching the lower leaves.
To ensure good color there must be sufficient micronutrients in the water.
