Plant Sizes

Just wanted to give you a heads up that the image of the plant you'll be receiving is just an example of what you can expect. Each plant is unique and may vary in size and shape, so it won't be an exact match to the photo. If we provide a size guide, keep in mind that it's just an estimate and that plants can vary in size depending on the time of year.

Our Delivery Promise to you

If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.



If you order before 4pm we dispatch the same working day (Mon-Fri). Shipping prices start at £4.99 depending on the speed of delivery required.

Rotala wallichii, also known as "Dwarf Rotala," is a popular aquatic plant that is often used in aquascaping and as a natural filtration system in freshwater tanks. There are many reasons why a hobbyist might choose to purchase Rotala wallichii for their tank.

One of the main benefits of Rotala wallichii is its ability to remove excess nutrients from the water, making it an effective tool for controlling algae growth and maintaining a healthy tank environment. The plant is also able to absorb toxins and waste products, helping to keep the water clean and clear.

In addition to its practical uses, Rotala wallichii is a visually striking plant that adds a unique and decorative element to any tank. Its delicate, needle-like leaves are a vibrant shade of pink or red, giving it a bold and eye-catching appearance. The plant is relatively easy to care for and can thrive in a range of lighting conditions, making it suitable for a wide variety of tanks.

Another reason why hobbyists might choose Rotala wallichii is its versatility in terms of placement. The plant is small and compact, making it suitable for use in the foreground, midground, or background of a tank. Its delicate leaves also make it a good choice for creating a natural, layered look in the aquarium.

Overall, Rotala wallichii is a great choice for aquarists who want to add some color and visual interest to their tank while also improving the overall health of their aquatic environment. Its vibrant leaves and ability to absorb excess nutrients make it a functional and attractive addition to any freshwater setup.

This grows quite slowly and is not yest as tall as I thought it would be, but it is under strong lighting. As with all plants from AE, it arrived in excellent condition and I was able to get several plants from the one pot
