The Latin name means "the plant with the round leaves'', but this only applies to the marsh variety, which has circular leaves. Rotala rotundifolia from South-East Asia has 15-30 long stems (2-3 cm wide) and long, narrow leaves. Unlike other Rotala species it is relatively undemanding, although it needs good light to produce red leaves.
It forms side shoots willingly, becoming compact and bushy. This also means that it is hard for light to reach the lower leaves, so the plant should be pruned frequently. Also known as Rotala indica.

Super fast delivery
Super fast delivery of great quality plants. Very well packaged. I highly recommend Aquarium Gardens and have always had courteous service and advice when needed. 5 stars
This plant grows within days even when my other plants were struggling. 2-3 weeks im and cutting back and replanting cuttings. Looks great.
Fab little plant. Good condition. Great service from these guys.
