[APD] Re: Rotala rotundifolia going bushy instead of growing tall.

* From: "Pete" <peteal at sympatico_ca> *

Weird thing happened. After about a year my Rotala rotundifolia as suddenly started growing sideways only instead of upward........

That means it is healthy, getting good light and nutrients, and has some room to spread. Many, if not most stem plants have this behavior. They go into 'takeover' mode. Lebensraum!! They want to spread out and claim as much real estate as they can. When they bump up against other plants or the light starts getting dim, they start growing up.
