Rotala Wallichii "Whorly Rotala"

Rotala Wallichii "Whorly Rotala"is a variation of Rotala that is somewhat difficult to keep compared to the other Rotala variations. Medium to high light with additional fertilization is usually required and will help prevent lower stem portions from dying off. With proper lighting and fertilization Rotala Wallichii will produce a pinkish/red hue on it's leaves. Higher phosphate levels should produce a more red appearance in this variation.

Use of a high quality planted tank substrate (our favorites can be found by clicking here) and CO2 injection can help yield better growth and color.

You will receive one (1) bunch that includes 3-5 stems of this plant. Portion size may vary. 

Scientific Name: Rotala wallichii "Whorly"

Light Requirements: Medium to High

Care Level: Hard

Note: Please do additional research on your plant to ensure its health. Propagation of Rotala is similar to all other stem plants where you cut the stem and replant into the substrate.

Beautiful plants for my tank

Really impressed with the packaging and health of the plants and shrimp after a trip thru the mail. I got ordered two wallichii and I must have gotten 4 good root clusters!

Beautiful plant

It truly is a beautiful plant and gives your tank a nice color pop. Arrived smushed and half dying but with a lot of TLC it has perked up and looks great. I’ve bought aquatic plants from other sellers and they arrived better packaged and in better quality. Definitely was a bit bummed at arrival but like I said with a lot of TLC it made a come around and is doing great.

Hi Jackie!

Rotala wallichii

Plant stems arrived in good shape but they were tiny. Planted it in my dirted 5 g nano tank. I know it’s labeled as a somewhat difficult plant and I’m not running CO2 in that tank so I’ll see how it does. There is a new shoot on one of the stems so I’m hopeful.

Hey Colleen!

If you wanted to talk more about it with me and see if there is anything that we can do for you please email me back at and I'd be happy to see what we can do! Have a great day!
