Origin

Asia

This plant originates from Asia. This small-leaved species has an attractive delicate appearance and is ideal for planting in groups in the back or mid-ground of the aquarium.

Rotala rotundifolia requires relatively strong lighting. Given bright light and sufficient nutrients, the leaves may change from an olive green to a pinkish colour towards the top of the plant.

It has long thin leaves that are 2–3 cm wide.

It produces numerous side shoots that need to be trimmed regularly in order to allow light to get to the lower leaves. Rotala rotundifolia is adaptable to moderate light and lower temperatures, although growth will be slowed. A few leaf shaped varieties are available.

Propagation is undertaken by taking cuttings which should be at least 10 cm long to ensure good growth and replanting them into the substrate.
