Rotala Macrandra Yellow is a beautiful aquarium plant that is highly enjoyed by enthusiasts. Like most Rotala species, its delicate and dramatic appearance makes for a bold mid-ground to background aquatic plant choice. Its only downside, subjectively, is that is quite demanding and requires specific care to flourish. High lighting must be used to yield vivid coloration and CO2 injection is very beneficial for the health of this species. When planting Rotala Macrandra Yellow, ample space should be left in between to ensure all areas of the plant receive good lighting and consistent pruning will be necessary. To achieve propagation, take a cutting from one of the plant's side shoots or axial roots and re-plant it into quality aquarium soil.

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.
