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.

Top service as usual. These make a really nice colour feature and offset the greenery beautifully. They've doubled in size since receipt and look very healthy.

Sadly much or the two plants I ordered were unusable due to snapped or wilting stems, but what I recovered has been planted and is flourishing. It's taken very nicely. Using stratum as a base substrate, topped with fluorite black.
