Originating from America the Alternanthera's produce beautiful different species, this particular one has Vibrant pink leaves. The plant has a compact form of growth and the stalk does not grow as strongly as other Alternanthera. As with all Alternanthera, good light and fertilizer conditions, as well as CO2 additive is material for growth and colour development.

Suitable for planting in the mid-section of the aquarium – and even in the front when cut well.  This particular plant will look great planted in two's or three's and amongst dark rocks.

Note - this is a small plant and the picture shows it at the full potential and not the size you will receive.

Nice plant. I was worried it wouldn't get enough light being slightly covered by another leaf, but it seems to have grown in a few weeks so it is now above the level of the others. I'm quite low-tech but it seems to still be keeping a nice colour. And so far my apple snails don't seem to be eating it, which is always a plus!

Very nice little plant. Arrived promptly in good condition.

Quick delivery and well packed. I've had it in my tank for a few weeks now and it has grown well with a lovely dark pink underneath and a more delicate green and pink on top of the leaves. (It pays to "listen" to Richard's tips ????)

Healthy plant but smaller than I have received in the past and in the photo

Excellent foreground plant, came in great condition and has grown so well I’ve already been able to propagate them , just about doubled the cover I had.

Ask a question about this product
is this plant ok with co2


Co2 preferred

can they survive without CO2


they can - growth is slow though

Will 2to3 litres of tropica substrate added to 125l tank for specific planting make any difference to the water for the fish it already has substrate from original planting 18mths ago I want to add some red plants


Maybe a slight improvement
