What are Tropica Rotala rotundifolia Live Aquatic Plant Pots?

Rotala rotundifolia, commonly called Roundleaf toothcup, is a species of live aquatic plant from South East Asia that is easily identifiable for its round leaves. unlike other rotala species, it is relatively undemanding although it needs good light to produce the red leaves that give it a distinctive appearance. The thin leaves form side shoots willingly becoming compact and bushy, so they must be pruned frequently if you don't want your Rotala rotundifolia to get out of control. 

Why is Rotala rotundifolia a good aquarium plant?

Rotala rotundifolia from South East Asia is an outstanding aquarium plant as its bright and vibrant with lush green circular leaves. It makes a particularly good background plant, as its bushy appearance can easily fill a large area. Fish will enjoy hiding and investigating the plant as the stems create lots of hiding spots. With few needs, save good light, it's easy to see why this is a fishkeeping favourite.

What are the differences between the products in this range?

You can buy Rotala rotundifolia as a standard pot or a mini pot. The standard pot is a potted plant with a large root structure while the mini pot is a smaller plant grown in a coconut fibre mini pot that can be planted directly into your aquascape. Both offer the same great plant, although the mini pot is a better choice for smaller enclosures.
