Red Root Floaters

Scientific Name:  Phyllanthus Fluitans Red Root Floater

Common Names: Red Root Floaters

Red Root Floaters, scientifically known as Phyllanthus Fluitans, are prized for open aquariums, featuring slender stems and distinctively hairy, centrally arched floating leaves. Their reddish roots draw nutrients directly from the water, though they require careful maintenance, demanding specific lighting and water conditions along with additional fertilizer for optimal growth. Despite their water-repellent leaves, they're sensitive to dripping water, thriving best in open tanks with no lids. Enhanced lighting intensifies their red hue and accelerates growth, but they require harder water as light increases. Successful cultivation may yield rare white flowers and green fruits, rewarding enthusiasts. Maintaining constant high humidity, low-flow water and regular fertilization with trace elements sustains their robust growth, ensuring their vitality in aquarium settings.
