Recently, I acquired some Rotala rotundifolia sp. green from Charley (lowcoaster on the erstwhile Aquabid.com).

This plant responds well to heavy pruning by forming a bushy thicket. As the thicket gets denser, fully-leaved stems creep across the substrate to take over more territory. Has anyone noticed this habit? The more one prunes, the more it creeps.

Initially, when I planted this species in Flourite, it did produce a lot of above-the-substrate-surface water roots :) . That was because the stems had been damaged by planting in the somewhat sharp-edged Flourite. The water roots grew down into the substrate and stems sprouted off them. I then removed the older first-planted stems and have not had water roots since.
