Rotala indica 'Bonsai'
Rotala indica "Bonsai"
True variety - not to be confused with Rotala rotundifolia!
Also known as Ammannia Sp. “Bonsai”, this interesting Rotala species displays small circular leaves that are green in colour, tightly packed on strictly upright stems. Under intense lighting, shoot tips and stems may take on red hues.
With its slower growth speed and compact form, Rotala Indica is a perfect midground plant.
It is moderately difficult to grow, requiring medium to intense lighting to achieve compact growth and smaller leaves, as well as regular fertilisation and CO2 injection.
