Rotala sp. "H'Ra" has narrow leaves and develops a nice light orange to red colour under good lighting. It has the same elegant growth habit as the light green Rotala sp. "Green": overhanging to horizontal ramified stems.
The plant has been named after its location H'Ra in the province of Gia Lai in central Vietnam. This plant is likely a variation of the species Rotala rotundifolia.
High light levels, good fertilization and added CO2 will induce almost exclusively creeping growth and a warm, rich orange coloration. This makes it possible to create a dense, orange mid-ground cushion or even an unusual, orange foreground carpet.
Growth Rate: High
