Rotala Rotundifolia is arguably one of the better-known aquarium stem plants. Originating from Southeast Asia, there are now many variations of Rotala Rotundifolia readily available in the planted tank hobby. Rotala Rotundifolia Red is a popular one with color tones varying from pink to orange, yellow and deep reds with final coloration determined by the overall aquarium's condition and parameters. Like most Rotala species, this aquarium stem plant is a prolific grower and will require routine maintenance to keep up with growth. If frequent maintenance is not a concern, we recommend Rotala to aquarists who are looking for relatively easy aquarium plants that grow quickly and will easily fill available space in a planted tank.

We recommend growing this plant in a nutritious substrate with medium lighting, CO2 injection and a quality aquatic plant fertilizer. Don't forget to have a good pair of premium aquascaping scissors at the ready for your aquarium stem plants!
