Description: Rotala florida is a rare aquarium plant and one of few that is purple in colour. When grown in lower lighting, green shades are more prominent. Optimal conditions will yield the most impressive purple colours. 

Difficulty: As with all aquarium plants, Co2 injection and appropriate fertilisation are recommended for optimal health and growth. Rotala florida can be grown in most freshwater aquariums, but the best structure is shown with high light and Co2 injection.

Emersed Growth: Rotala florida is easy to grow emersed and can manage a range of humidity levels quite well. Transitioning between emersed and submersed forms does not seem difficult for this plant.
