Rotala Indica – The Thriving Tropical Aquarium Plant
Rotala Indica is a popular aquatic plant often used in Aquascapes. Found naturally in South-east Asia, this plant offers lush, green leaves and stems that fan out, creating a stunning, tropical environment in your tank.
While Rotala Indica is admired for its aesthetics, it's more than just a pretty plant. It helps maintain healthier water conditions by absorbing excess nutrients, which helps reduce algae growth. Constant pruning can encourage pink and red hues, adding to the plant's overall visual appeal.
Caring for Rotala Indica is easy, even for beginners. It is a hardy plant that can thrive in a range of water conditions, making it ideal for aquarium enthusiasts of any experience level. Simply ensure that it receives sufficient light, and watch it flourish, creating an attractive Aquascape.
Choosing Rotala Indica for your Aquascape not only offers an attractive, lush vista but also promotes a healthier environment for the inhabitants of your tank. Experience the transformative effects of this versatile aquatic plant today.

All three Green Jade Mystery Snails were dead. I opened the box and floated their bag in my aquarium for about an hour. Opened bag and allowed them to sink to the bottom. After about 30 hours on the bottom it was obvious they were DOA! Last time I will try to purchase online with live product.
