Rotala Indica | Rotala Rotundifolia - Information, Care, Grow.

Hardiness: Moderate
Light Needs: Medium to High
Genus: Rotala
Family: Lythraceae
Region: South East Asia
Growth Rate: Slow

Rotala Indica is a plant with small leaves that are usually green on top with shades of pink on the bottom. It is originally from South East Asia and it is ideal for middle ground placement in an aquascape. Its small leaves can grow densely and might require some trimming over time.

This plant is perfect for fish that are not aggressive towards plants. It requires medium to high lighting and it does better in warmer water. The Rotala Indica can benefit from the addition of CO2 and iron fertilizers to its roots. To reproduce this plant, simply cut the height you desire and plant it into the gravel. In time, roots will form and get a foothold in the gravel.

Here is a video I found on the care of Rotala Indica
