Rotala indica has two growth forms. The emersed form (grown above the surface of the water) has small round green leaves on thin stalks and whitish "flowers". The submerged form (underwater growth) has delicate, leafy strands, with slight pink tint. Emersed-structure plants will transform to the submerged grownth over time in the aquarium. The coloration and leaf shape provide a nice contrast in an all-green aquarium. This plant grows quickly in the right conditions and may need to be pruned regularly. The cuttings should develop roots quickly after being planted. This plant is also known as and thought to be a variant of Rotala rotundifolia.
Bunched plants are typically sold as cuttings that are bound together with a metal plant weight or rubber bands. These individual stalks can be planted by inserting the end of the stalk into the substrate, either individually or - with some plants - in groupings of several stalks. Most bunch plants do not have roots but may grow roots in time. They can be easily pruned by trimming the stalk at the desired height. The trimmings can then be planted as well if desired. Some bunched plants do not need to be planted and may be allowed to float on the water's surface.

Took over my 10G tank; betta loves them 1/12/2016
These plants are gorgeous for background -pic doesn't do them justice. I've had them growing in a 10G tank for over a year now without issue. They ended up pink on the bottoms of the leaves and light green on the tops, and seem to do fine with minimal light and no supplementation of any kind (dirt and sand bottom tank, no CO2). They tend to grow up quickly and float on the top of the water to start, but once they get trimmed, they start branching heavily, and if you don't trim them frequently, they take over small tanks, and the bottoms of the plants shed leaves. They grow so quickly I've never had a spot of algae in this tank. Even overgrown like crazy, though, they don't seem to negatively impact my grasses or leafy plants, and they seem to have no interest in spreading unless they are specifically planted in a particular spot.
I've been trimming these and using the cuttings as floating plants when I need to trim back the surface-covering lilly pads in my larger tanks. This does a wonderful job of preventing algal blooms around trim time. As floating plants, they get quite a lot of dangly roots, which makes them excellent cover for live-bearers. The excess cuttings also do (and look) marvelously in a vase with water in a dim window (I have two 1/2 gallon vases with these in a window which gets no direct light, and I simply add water every few weeks), and they survived transplanting to non-aquatic use very nicely, so good for terrariums or paludariums, as well as aquariums.
