ROTALA 'BONSAI'


  • Rotala indica 'Bonsai' is best described as a compact, moderate growing version of Bacopa caroliniana.
  • Plant it in small groups and trim it often. Cuttings may be re-planted in the group to achieve a more dense group or carpet.
  • At high light the tip of the stems may become reddish, at lower light the leaves will become larger and the plant less compact.
  • Rotala 'Bonsai' is particularly suitable for nano-aquariums

1-2-GROW!

Small plants with great success. 1•2•Grow! Are very young plants cultivated and delivered directly from our laboratory. The plants are guaranteed to be free from snails, algae and pesticides and therefore are totally harmless for sensitive shrimp and fish. The range offers unique plants!

Success with your aquarium depends largely on the proper plant choice. In a 1•2•Grow! cup you buy a myriad of plants which can be divided into small portions and cover a larger area. Plants are compact from the start so you will experience a dense and beautiful growth, if you give them the right fertiliser and CO2 from the start! The range is perfect for small and medium sized aquariums, and your patience will be rewarded...

The range offers several mosses and specialties such as Rotala macrandra, Rotala 'Bonsai' and mini versions of traditional varieties such as Alternanthera and Eleocharis.

See our video about how to handle these plants here or read below:

  1. Carefully take the plant out of the cup and rinse off the growing media under the tap.

  2. Split the plant in 6-8 portions using your fingers or sharp scissors (for small foreground plants).

  3. Plant portions into the substrate using tweezers. Then watch them grow!
