Rotala Rotundifolia, commonly known as round-leaved Rotala or Pink Sprite. It is a species of aquatic plant belonging to the family Lythraceae. It is a popular aquarium plant that is native to Southeast Asia and is widely distributed in countries like India, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Malaysia.

Rotala Rotundifolia is a stem plant that grows up to 50 cm in length and has small round leaves that grow in opposite pairs along its stem. It has a bright green coloration and can develop a reddish hue under high light conditions. The plant can be easily propagated by cutting the stem and replanting it in the substrate of an aquarium.

In an aquarium, Rotala Rotundifolia requires moderate to high light and CO2 supplementation to thrive. It is a fast-growing plant and can quickly fill in empty spaces in the aquarium, making it a popular choice for aquascaping.

                Nice plants!

                I received this rotala in my first order from APF and I absolutely love it! Really nice portion, healthy plants, and a good price!! Much better than this other plant site I had been ordering from. Their prices were to high for way less portion and quality.

                Nice and Healthy

                Received so many lush Rotala! Fast shipping and follow up e-mail was awesome.

                Happy Customer, as Usual!

                These plants are so delicate but they arrived in great condition!! This seller does an excellent job of sending out super high quality plants as well as packing them so they’ll arrive safely and bounce back fast. So far these plants have really nice, rosy stems - not sure what the leaves are going to do yet but right now they are a lovely shade of yellow-green.

                Arrived in great condition

                The Rotala arrived a bit later than expected but were still in great condition. Already seeing some roots.

                Arrived in theater condition

                Plants were healthy and in good condition !

                sara grossie
                Generous bunches!

                I typically don’t use the lead weights as I have enough substrate to prevent my plants from floating up. When I took the weights off my rotala I was so surprised with how many stems were in each bunch! I really appreciate that the number of stems makes sense for the species and the price. Thank you!
