Pisces Tissue Culture Rotala Colorata Rotundifolia
live aquarium plants are grown in a purpose built sterile laboratory, free from pests, disease and algae. Tissue culture plants do not require watering and are grown in a nutrient rich agar jelly inside 5cm food grade plastic pots.
Tissue Culture plants can survive for quite some time in these containers but we recommend using them as soon as possible to get the most freshness from the plants.
Before planting, rinse off all of the Agar (jelly) and separate the tissue culture in to smaller bunches.
This is an aquatic plant and if kept under the correct conditions should continue to thrive for many years.

Strong lights and regular fertilization will bring out strong stems (intense pink) and bigger leaves. CO2 supplementation of 5mg/L and above for optimal growth.
