Rotala H'Ra has a growth-pattern quite like Rotala 'green' - they both grow much like a "fountain", upwards and spreading out. They also both have the habit of growing some stems, that will tend to bend downwards and grow horizontal. High light intensity will induce much more horizontal growth and you can actually grow a quite low, orange/pink carpet in very high light and added CO2.
- so your Rotala H'Ra sounds like it is growing the way Rotala H'Ra is supposed to grow.
