My personal contribution to the page:

Quote:
My personal experience with this plant showed that it was indeed difficult to keep. In a new tank with 0.8 W/L of lighting and CO2 injection, where all other species took off right away, my R. wallichii died. I believe this was mainly due to a higher sensitivity to the local water's pH and hardness which were high. But this is certainly a plant that's worth having and worth the effort of trying to offer ideal conditions...when healthy and growing well it has a very rare, beautiful color tone and texture, causing great impact on the aquascape.
