Rotala indica originates from South East Asia. It grows to a height of 40 till 60 cm. It is the perfect plant for the centre of your aquaria. For the best growth a decent supply of light is needed. The more light provided the smaller and more densely packed the leaves will become. Trimming may be needed. Regular additions of iron rich fertilizers, CO2 and trace elements will help R. Indica reach its full potential in your aquarium. When conditions are well suited to R. Indica, it will take on a beautiful red colour on the newer leaves of the growing stem. It is easy to grow. Propagation is possible by removing a leaf about an inch from the stem and replant in suitable substrate.
