2. Rotala is included in our BEGINNER PLANTED AQUARIUM COMBO PACKAGE for a reason! It's easy!
My experience with Rotala is that it is undemanding of high light, but will grow more compact in higher light. Rotala rotundifolia will be a bit more leggy in lower light.
Where to Plant:
Anywhere from Foreground to background depending on how well you keep it, the size of your tank, and can easily be trimmed if it becomes too tall, but will never be as tall as a Hygro nachimale for example
The Rotala Rotundifolia bunches that I received from Dustin were so seductively alive and flourishing that I could have added them to my tossed salad, used them as a garnish, or created a crude skirt for ritual lovemaking. But I decided to put them in my aquarium instead, and they look marvelous! I highly recommend these plants!
I love it’s shape and color
Amazingly healthy and full of.long thick roots
My first purchase here was amazing. Received more than I was expecting and shipping was quick (west coast based, shipped on Tuesday, arrived Friday). The team was even helpful over Instagram and replied to my messages quick. I won't hesitate to order more in the future! I purchased Java Moss (2), Java Fern reg (1), Java Fern Windelov (1), Anubias Nana (1), Alternanthera Reineckii red (1) and Rotala Rotundifolia (1). Photo does not show the Java moss. Thanks guys!
We love this plant! And cannot wait until it spreads. Highly recommend! We will be placing another order soon.
