The purple colour underneath leaves of Alternanthera reineckii 'Pink' from South America provides an effective contrast to the many green plants in an aquarium - particularly when planted in groups. Stems becomes 25-50 cm tall. Good light encourages the leaves to turn red. Easy to propagate by nipping off the terminal bud and planting it in the substrate. This also makes the mother plant more bushy, because more side shoots are formed.

As always from these guys great quality plants. Two plants were healthy, vibrant and my fish seem to appreciate the new look!

This plant looks striking in the tank, and the fishes love to eat it, which is part of the 'deal' of course! The plants are despatched wrapped up immaculately against all eventualities, including 'Arctic conditions' ! I wouldn't have believed that they would survive an unscheduled delivery delay of four days in extreme weather conditions, but they arrived in top condition, albeit rather cold! Well done to all concerned! This is the place to buy online aquatic plants!

I planted these lovely red plants into baskets, put 1 tablet of fertilizer in it & filled in with gravel. 2 weeks later the red colour has really fade & the leaves are falling off & rising to the surface. I thought i did everything correct to look after these plants. Dont know where im going wrong. Feel like giving up as ive spent a small fortune on plants & none seem to thrive.

This is a great plant, took a little while to establish but is growing well now. Its not as colourful as I thought it would be. Would recommend though.
