Rotala Indica is a popular aquatic stem plant that can grow tall and thick making it a suitable background plant in planted aquariums. The tips of the leaves can turn reddish colored when grown with high light, CO2, and fertilization. Round leaves grow horizontally on the tall stems and can create a dazzling effect when grown in thick bushes. Frequent trimming will be necessary to achieve this effect in a planted tank.
