Rotala macrandra 'Bangladesh'

Specimen Type

A classic red stem plant.  It has strikingly beautiful red leaves that contrast well with other Green stem plants, a great stem plant to use if you would like to add some red color among your stem plants.  It is slightly more demanding and strong light and CO2 is a big plus.

Tissue culture plants are grown in-vitro (literally: in the glass) in a nutrient-rich synthetic growing medium, either liquid or gel, without the presence of any other lifeforms. This guarantees a pest and disease-free specimen, while also providing accuracy throughout the trade.  

Tissue culture plants should be removed from the cup as soon as possible. All plants grow on some sort of synthetic growing medium, ranging anywhere from liquid to jelly to firm gel. This should be removed and rinsed off. Gently massage the roots between your fingers until the gel dissolves away. Most plants can be broken up into smaller pieces and spread out in your aquarium. Smaller pieces are easier to plant.

We only ship livestock Monday to Wednesday to avoid weekend delays. Please keep in mind the availability of plants can change quickly as they come in and out of our possession or deteriorate in health, so there could be a delay updating the published availability. We will be in touch if the species you order is not available and you will always have the option to wait or take a substitute or refund. We appreciate your patience as we work to deliver healthy plants to you. 

Please note: We source our plants from several different growers and restock on a rotating basis. We aim to keep each species in stock from at least one supplier but not necessarily more. By default, we will send the freshest plant regardless of which grower you select. If you are particular about which grower supplies your plant, please make this clear in your order notes. There may be a wait for you to receive a plant from a specific grower, depending on when we are able to order from them and their availability.

I got about 15 stems from my cup. I planted them on the back of my 40 gallon tank where the substrate is over 4 inches deep. I built my substrate with DTE 444 organic fertilizer, peat moss based top soil, and fine gravel cap. I did soak my soil mixture thoroughly before putting in the tank. I cycled my tank with fish, snails, and filter medium from existing tank. They took off within a week and grows about 1 inch per week. I run CO2 and Fluvial 3.0 on my tank. However their leaves are still green. I am thinking about adding iron fertilizer once I had my algae under control.
