Sleeping Beauty - Rotala wallichii
One of the plants that I have that obiviously display the circadian rhythm, the Rotala wallichii, a sleeping beauty :-D
This was taken at night...
...And this is during the day
A beautiful background plant, if planted well :-D
I've wrote a short article, check it out here
that is a beautiful plant? does it require the same lighting/fert requirements as the other rotalas??
I might need to get some of them!
that's so cool!! I love how they open up during the day.
My Rotala Indica closes up at night, or when it has had enough light too. :) But wow those are beautiful!
Great pics. Thanks for posting. :-)
I'd like to hear about your unusual ferting. Tell me more!
haha, actually it's unusual because I use gardening fertilizer :D
Until today still I haven't figure out how much is enough, but just gut feeling :)
But for the case in the rotala, no ferting because I use potting soil as substrate, so ferting won't be that soon :D
Wonder if i can get some of those here in south africa
I think you can get this kind of plant there, it's quite common, I mean it's not a new species, it's been in the trade for a long time :D
hahaha the world cup goin crazy down here. locals are going crazy with their vuvuzelas ( a plastic kinda trumpet thing that annoys the crap out of everybody)...
I will have a look around for some of those plants. Alot has been blacklisted down here due to invasion ie: hydrilla, elodea, hornwort etc etc
