Description

Alternanthera cardinalis Variegata is a fine-looking bushy, stem plant with sturdy red/purple stems and long, pointy attractive leaves. It originates from South America and needs plenty of light to develop the red/purple leaves. With the addition of CO2 this plant will grown up to 50cm in height. If there is a lack of micro nutrients this plant will suffer and the leaves will become pale in colour.

This engaging plant will bring instant vibrancy and colour to your aquarium. As with all stem plants grow in groups of two and up. A beautiful yet slightly demanding plant.

Already growing and spreading with new growth. Healthy plants as always.

The plant was a good size and has survived well so far. It has kept its colour and still fairly bushy. I have good light in my tanks and use fertiliser and liquid CO2. I've managed to propagate some cuttings from it so I'm very pleased.

How do you plant these in the tank?

 
Staff

Remove plastic pot then remove rockwall and split the plant up into individual stems. Then plant direct into substrate.
