Ammannia Sp. Bonsai Live Freshwater Plant - Aquatic Farmer

Ammannia Sp. Bonsai Live Freshwater Plant - Aquatic Farmer


Item #: JB2204

Shipped by Aquatic Farmer in 3-5 business days

This new arrival was known as Ammania spec. Bonsai, but it is actually the "real" Rotala indica. This name was mistakenly used as a synonym for Rotala rotundifolia for decades. Unlike Rotala rotundifolia, the differences between the emersed and submerged leaves of this plant are hard to see. The oval to circular leaflets are densely packed on the stem and give a very ornamental appearance. The growth is always upright, which provides interesting design possibilities. The slow growth also favors placing it in the foreground or the mid-zone of an underwater landscape. A free standing group in a Hemianthus carpet looks particularly impressive.
