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 macrandra boasts extraordinary red coloration and is perhaps the most coveted representative of the Genus Rotala, popular for their showy, colorful foliage among planted aquarium hobbyists. This striking plant is notable for its gorgeous fiery red coloration that is dependent on high intensity lighting, CO2 supplementation, and balanced fertilization. As such, Rotala macrandra is best suited for the experienced or dedicated novice hobbyists to ensure healthy growth and intense coloration. 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 macrandra does well when provided full spectrum (5000°K-7000°K) lighting of high intensity. Ideal growing conditions with high light conditions, CO2 supplementation, and balanced fertilization will stimulate faster grow and intense coloration. Avoid dense planting or prune as necessary to ensure proper light penetration essential for maintaining desirable shape and coloration. Approximate Purchase Size: 1" to 3"
