Whorly Rotala (Rotala wallichi) is a very strikingly elegant stem plant that is a great addition to the high-tech aquarium. It is much more demanding than many other Rotala species, but it is extremely rewarding when given excellent to optimal care. With the correct water parameters, high lighting, and CO2 supplementation when possible, this plant will flourish and display incredible red/purple coloration!
The stems of Whorly Rotala should be planted far enough apart that the light will penetrate all the way to the bottom of the stem. High lighting is possibly the most important factor in keeping this plant in optimal condition. Fairly high phosphate and low nitrate levels are also preferred. Nutrient-rich substrate is also a necessity. CO2 is strongly recommended. The fastest growth will happen in soft water. If its needs are met, Whorly Rotala will develop side shoots, which can be clipped and replanted as they reach enough length to not be overshadowed by other larger plants.
