Rotala Rotundifolia is a classic aquatic stem plant that is commonly seen in a wide variety of planted aquarium tanks. This aquarium stem is a prolific grower and produces beautiful colors that include green, pink and orange tones depending on the conditions of the aquarium. Rotala Rotundifolia is commonly hybridized and is relatively undemanding, making it a popular choice for both beginner aquarists and seasoned aquascapers. Rotala Rotundifolia forms side shoots easily when pruned, making it a great contender for creating the compact and bushy effect in the background area of the tank. When mixed with other colorful aquarium stem plants, Rotala Rotundifolia is ornamental and is sure to impress. We recommend a nutritious aqua soil, CO2 injection and moderate lighting to start. Consistent maintenance habits will improve health and overall growth. Like other species of Rotala, Rotala Rotundifolia is versatile and can be grown in both submerged and emersed conditions making this aquarium stem a great choice for all styles of aquarium keeping and planted setups such as a classic Wabi Kusa. 

We recommend this plant for aquarists looking for a unique background or midground aquatic plant. Pruning is simple and can be done by replanting trimmed stems into quality aquarium soil.
