If you're looking for a smaller red plant, then you've landed on the right page. This is a smaller version of the well-known Alternanthera and is characterized by compact growth and a slower growth rate (an unusual combination). It is particularly suitable for small aquariums or as a foreground plant in larger aquascapes. By careful trimming can you create a dense, red-violet carpet approximately 5 to 10 cm high. High light intensity and addition of CO2 improves the plants growth and overall appearance.

We advise to trim the stems every 6-8 weeks. In discus aquariums this South American plant adds a splash of colour when combined with sword plants.

Arrived very quickly, well packaged and lovely quality. Doing very well. Has lost a little colour but will hopefully colour up again once it's settled in.

I was very impressed with the speed of delivery and I was even more pleased when I saw my plants, the colour was very intense and had plenty of growth. I look forward to seeing it planted in my tank properly and not just having the pot in another tank until I'm ready!

Hi, I brought 4 pots of these plants a beautiful red , I have noticed in two days leaves have become a lot paler, I have t5 lighting which is on for 8 hrs plus I use profito and easy carbo, could you give me some advice please thanks


that's very normal. If you want your plants to become more red, add pressurised CO2 and more lighting with fertilisers such as Neutro+

Every plant I want is sold out! Not a great site!


Sorry to hear that but if you let me know what plants you are after I can advise on timescales
