Rotala Ramosior Florida is a type of aquatic plant commonly used in planted aquariums. It is a stem plant with delicate, narrow leaves that can range in color from green to red.
In terms of care, it requires a moderate to high light intensity and CO2 injection to thrive. It also benefits from regular fertilization with a complete liquid fertilizer. It is a relatively fast-growing plant and can quickly fill in empty spaces in an aquarium.
It is often used in aquascaping layouts to create a vibrant, colorful foreground or midground. It is a popular choice among aquarists due to its attractive appearance and ease of care.
- Lighting: requires moderate to high light intensity to thrive. Ideally, you should provide it with at least 2 watts of light per gallon of water, although it can tolerate higher light levels if acclimated gradually.
- CO2 Injection: benefits from the injection of CO2 into the aquarium water. This helps the plant grow faster and healthier. You should aim for a CO2 level of 20-30 ppm.
- Water Parameters: prefers slightly acidic to neutral water with a pH of 6.0 to 7.5. It also prefers soft to moderately hard water with a KH between 2-10 dKH and a GH of 3-10 dGH.
- Nutrients: is a heavy feeder and requires regular fertilization. You can use a complete liquid fertilizer that contains all the necessary macro and micronutrients. You can also add root tabs to provide additional nutrients to the plant.
- Pruning: grows rapidly, so you may need to prune it regularly to prevent it from taking over your aquarium. You can trim the stems using sharp scissors or pruning shears and replant the cuttings to propagate the plant.
- Water Changes: Regular water changes are essential to maintain the health of Rotala ramosior Florida. You should aim for weekly water changes of 20-30% to remove any accumulated waste and maintain good water quality.
Tissue culture plants are young aquatic plants that are developed in-vitro in aquatic plant propagation laboratories. This unique cultivation ensures these plants are devoid of undesired snails, algae, and pesticides, making them completely safe for even the most delicate fish and shrimp species.
We offer a diverse range of tissue cultured aquarium plant varieties. Our cultures provide substantial planting portions, and when combined with high-quality fertilizers and CO₂ injection will grow into healthy aquatic plants.
Just lower the root portion of the tissue culture's clump that needs to be planted directly into the soil until it is buried halfway into the aquatic soil.
