Description

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.

Great plant, arrived quickly in good condition and is thriving

Arrived quickly and in excellent condition. Was extremely well packaged. Unfortunately did not like the conditions in my low light nano tank and its roots melted. However, I would definitely buy from Aqua Essentials in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.

A fantastic plant. A great color discontinuity in a mostly green settling. Arrived in excellent conditions with great roots. Growing well in the aquarium after a week and half. Mind you, I used express delivery since I wanted to minimize the travel stress.

Unfortunately these plants were delivered on one of the coldest days experienced at that time, heavy frost etc. On inspection the plants felt very cold. I left them in their pots overnight in the tank ( juwel trigon 190, with upgraded lighting ) to acclimatise. When the individual stems were planted they looked good. But that wasn't long lasting. The next day leaves were dropping off and whole stems breaking off. Any stems that appeared to be useable, were planted back. This is still the case at the moment. In fact that area in the tank looks like a battle field, stumps everywhere.

Ordered these plants along with some others and these were extremely impressive. The colour is amazing on them and they are growing fast in our tank. Really nice addition as a bit of a standout plant in the tank. Really easy to look after too.
