Explore your creativity with a clean, modern way to plant your aquarium landscape. We are pleased to introduce Tropica® 1•2•Grow! laboratory-cultivated plants guaranteed to be free from snails, algae, and pesticides.

Tropica 1•2•Grow! streamlines the aquascaping process, delivering high quality plants in convenient cups. Simply rinse the gel growing media off when removing plant from cup, divide and plant accordingly to your aquascape design, and then watch it grow!

Rotala 'Bonsai' is a beautiful aquarium plant with a wonderful compact and architectural growth habit. Regular trimmings help maintain a neat, well-groomed appearance that resembles a well-manicured hedge. Plant in small groups to achieve this effect, or consider replanting the trimmed cuttings for a dense carpe-like effect. Rotala 'Bonsai' is great as a foreground or mid-ground plant in your aquarium landscape and is particularly well suited for nano aquariums.

Tropica 1•2•Grow! laboratory-cultivated plants are ideally suited for planted aquarium hobbyists of all skill levels interested in setting up an exquisite planted aquarium with delicate fish or a lush landscape in miniature showcasing ornamental freshwater shrimp.

Smartly portioned cups beautifully accommodate small and medium sized aquariums. Also great for "touching up" larger established planted aquariums with open areas or invigorating your aquascape with new growth. Dense, compact planting in each cup responds to fertilization and CO2 supplementation resulting in luxurious growth.

Tropica® 1•2•Grow! Rotala 'Bonsai' does well when provided full spectrum (5000°K-7000°K) lighting of moderate intensity. Ideal growing conditions with higher light conditions, CO2 supplementation, and balanced fertilization will stimulate faster grow and intense coloration demonstrating attractive reddish tips.
