The structure of most of the aquarium plants includes: roots, stems, leaves, storage organs, and flowers (in the stem and rosette groups). Both Rosette Plants and Stem Plants are in the order of flowering plants. Actually, the majority of aquatic aquarium plants are types of flowering plants
For our purposes here, and to keep things simple, we are using flowering and non-flowering plants as our main groups in describing plant structure and growth. These plants can be grouped or categorized as: stem plants and rosette plants. The plants which are not flowering plants can be grouped or categorized as ferns and mosses. The primary meristem, called the apical meristem, are responsible for the primary plant growth. The apical meristem, or growing tip, is found in the buds and growing tips of roots in plants. Apical meristems are found in two locations: the root and the stem. There are several specific apical meristems including: Shoot apical meristems (shoot apex), Root apical meristems, Intercalary meristems, Floral meristems.

Aquarium care: Rotala rotundifolia are ideal aquarium plants for beginners. The species is a typical example of a rapidly growing stem plant and responds favorably to frequent and even heavy pruning. This plant can be used as regulator in a newly cycled tank. Pruning must be done on a frequent basis as the side shots will grow considerably under good condition, keeping the leaves at the base of the plant away from the light. Without pruning, the plant will take a bushy appearance which could be suitable for fry or breeding tanks. Although they are difficult to grow beyond the water surface; established plants will flower small, purple flowers above the water line.
This plant looks best when planted in large groups. Once it is flourishing, it propagates easily through new shoots or cuttings. Rotala rotundifolia is best placed in the middle or in the background of a tank.
Rotala rotundifolia is considered to be a fragile plant that should be excluded from environments with very active or large fish that may damage their fragile stems. aquarium plants flowering - Google Search

Most of the plants we grow in our aquariums flower naturally in the wild but it can be a rare instance in your home aquarium. It can be very exciting to find your aquarium plants producing blossoms and some can even be propagated this way. There are a few tips to knowing what plants are most likely to flower and what they need to do so. And what to do with those that can reproduce to achieve the best results. All flowering plants are called angiosperms. Not all the plants in the aquarium are angiosperms. Mosses, liverworts like riccia and pelia and aquatic ferns like Java fern, Bolbitus and Ceratopteris are more primitive plants and don't produce flowers or seeds but instead create spores giving them the name of sporophytes. If you want to really see your aquarium stemmed plants flower you need to plan ahead. There are several options available, and which you choose can depend on what you want the set up to look like, what types of plants you would like to grow and flower, and even where you live. The easiest set up for some stemmed plants to flower in your aquarium only requires you to lower your water level a couple of inches. Some aquatic stemmed plants like Cabomba and Zosterella dubia will float at the top of the water and send their flowers just above the surface, similar to the Aponogetons and Sagittaria. Of course any of the flowering plants that we keep in our aquariums has the potential to flower for us in our homes but some are much more likely to do so than others. There are several aquarium plants that are happy to surprise us with flowers while others may require more coxing.
