Rotala 'Green'

The Asiatic Rotala sp. ‘Green’ is very similar to Rotala rotundifolia, but its leaves remain fresh and bright green, even with intensive light. Stems becomes 40-50 cm long and 2-3 cm wide. The plant forms many side shoots willingly and obtains a beautiful, bushy and "hanging" growth. Prune it frequently to maintain healthy growth. An ideal starter plant that looks best when planted in large groups.
