Rotala Yao Yai is an uncommon stem plant with leaves that range from bright red to pink hues. It grows similar to other Rotala speices but the leaves have much more vivid coloration, resulting in a very pleasing mid to background plant depending on the aquarium it's planted in. Like all aquatic stem plants, Rotala Yao Yai can be repeatedly trimmed and replanted to create a lush thick bush, making it a perfect addition to any planted tank that demands color. Despite its colorful appearance, this Rotala can thrive in a wide range of tank conditions. However, to bring the best out of this plant, CO2, rich fertilizer and substrate is recommended.

This is truly the best option for those who want absolutely zero unwanted pests, algae and pesticides. This makes them perfect for shrimp keepers and any planted tank enthusiasts alike.
NOTE: It is important to remove the tissue culture agar gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away, divide, and plant.
