I have some of these plants, but I grow all of them emersed (faster growth out of water). Let me know if you want to do some plant swaps. Happy Holidays!

Hm I have been confused about Rotala indica for awhile haha but I think the answer is no. I've added a picture to the OP if that helps at all.
Same here haha...I was just looking it up, apparently rotundifolia is also named indica. I'm unsure still because I have some and they are not red (except beneath the leaves, its pinkish). This might be because I am running low tech and no co2. Anyways, I have some trimmings if you are interested let me know.

I am aware of a variety called Rotala rotundifolia 'green' that can only grow green. Also Rotala rotundifolia will mostly develop colour in high tech. I wouldn't mind giving your trimmings a try though! I will PM you. Thanks!!

Rotala Rotundifolia has been called Indica for a long time in the aquarium industry. Only recently, Ammania 'bonsai' has been confirmed as the true Rotala Indica. When aquaflora plants were still around, they went as Ammania 'bonsai'. All the various brands of tissue cultures now are Rotala 'bonsai'. There is a Rotala Rotundifolia 'pink' and 'green'.
