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.

This plant looked super impressive even before I took it out from it’s clear inner packaging. I ordered two which when divided up gave me 4 large , approximately 20cm group s of about 4stems and one smaller, great value for money. Once planted they look great, have lost just a few leaves and they are growing rapidly with the liquid co2 and neutro T regime. With out doubt this is the healthiest aquarium plant I have ever purchased and I have bought quite a lot over the last 35years in the hobby.

Great looking plant

Good quality but they aren't doing very well at the moment because of my water parameters. Nothing relevant to the quality of product when I first received them.

This came packed well. Put into tank fish enjoys swimming in and out of the leaves the colour is good.

Arrived in beautiful condition. Carefully removed most of the potting medium, divided them, and added to my sand/grit, at the back of the tank which gets both indirect natural light and the tank light. The colours are a lovely contrast to other plants. My tank is freshwater, around 21 degrees, and these plants are flourishing. I am now also using liquid carbon which may be boosting it!

good grower and it doesn't get devoured within 24 hours by my 2 large Severums!
