Description

Rotala rotundifolia is a time-tested popular stem plant wonderfully suitable for aquascaping. Its emerged form has roundish leaves, in the aquarium they grow to a longer, narrow form. Compared with other Rotala species it is relatively undemanding. This highly variable species is widely distributed in the Asian subtropics and tropics; standard variants available in trade are light green to reddish under water, depending on the light intensity.

Rotala rotundifolia is a classical aquarium plant, distributed from South over South-East to East Asia, where it is found in swamps, on riversides and in ricefields from the lowlands to a height of 2700 metres above sea level. Rice seeds imported into the Southern US were contaminated with Rotala seeds. Now this plant is also widely distributed there, too.
As aquarium plant, R. rotundifolia was first introduced under the erroneous name of Rotala indica around the year 1960, a confusion lasting to this date and creating possible mistakes, as the true Rotala indica (which differs considerably from Rotala rotundifolia) was also introduced to the hobby several years ago. The latter, however, was first imported under the trade name "Ammannia sp. 'Bonsai'", and, even earlier, due to a mix-up, mistakenly as "Lindernia sp. 'India'". (read more)
