Red Root Floater (Phyllanthus fluitans) is a South American floating plant that is known and highly desired for its bright red roots and underside, unlike most floaters that have brown roots. It has light to dark green leaves that can turn bright red when kept under high light.
NOTE: Each portion is roughly a small handful. Red Root Floaters can be very sensitive and might melt during shipping, but should regrow if left in a tank with minimal water surface disturbance.
