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.

Wasn’t sure about it when it arrived and when I first put it into one of my aquariums. But left a couple of days and now looks unbelievable. All the plants I have bought seem to be well looked after from Aqua Essentials. Highly recommend this plant as the colour is very nice.

Another fabulous plant , arrived in perfect condition I cannot fault any of the plants I have purchased. Thank you aqua essentials.

Arrived in good condition as all other purchases have but after just 1 week the leaves in the top 2/3rds developed holes which kept getting larger until the leaves died and feel off. Some of the bottom leaves are starting to do the same now too. Hoping they pick up again when the have settled in but am not holding much hope at the moment. All my other plants are doing well except for a couple which it seems my fish have developed a taste for.
