Alternanthera reineckii lilac is a fine-looking bushy, stem plant with beautiful purple leaves - grown in the greenhouses of Aqua Essentials, this is a top-quality plant that is literally growing until it goes into the plant bag. So these are SUPER FRESH and as a result extremely healthy and have the highest chance of success in your aquarium.

Originates from South America, it needs plenty of light to grow and form these beautiful leaves. Like most dark coloured plants, it will flourish even more with the added injection of CO2.

Looks best planted in groups. This plant has compact growth as it has been grown under high light conditions. In lower lights, it gets leggier so you'll need to trim it more often.

I ordered two of these. They came promptly and well packed. They were clearly healthy on arrival and a good size, about4" at a guess. They've been in my tank a couple of weeks or more now and are thriving, probably nearer 6" now. A lot more green than red, pretty much like the picture though.
