Rotala Magenta is a more species of Rotala. It grows at a far slower rate than your common stem plant and its stems tend to be very delicate. R. macrandra is propogated from cuttings.

The intense red color offers a lovely contrast, especially with green myriophylum and egeria najas. It is a great mid-ground plant and creates a very nice focal point. The bottom leaves are susceptible to decay from lack of light, so it is best to plant the stems individually or in very small groups, 2-3 stems maximum. It also has a tendency to get algae on its leaves, so the tank need to be very clean.
