Yesterday I found a plant that I cannot identify. I have seen it a
couple of times before. The general appearance is like that of
Didiplis diandra (same size, same kind of leaves, etc.), but the
leaves are a bright red. It was beging sold as a species of Rotala,
but it is definitely not R. rotundifolia, R. macarandra or R.
I did not buy it this time around, because I don't think my tank is
bright enough to keep it alive. So, what is this plant? Has anyone
managed to cultivate it successfully?
They also had single potted Crypt. petchii for $6.99 apiece (ouch!).
