This miniture version of the well-known Alternanthera is characterized by compact growth and a slower growth rate. 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 apperance.

1•2•Grow! Are very young plants cultivated and delivered directly from our laboratory. The plants are guaranteed to be free from snails, algae and pesticides and therefore are totally harmless for sensitive shrimp and fish. The range offers unique plants!

Success with your aquarium depends largely on the proper plant choice. In a 1•2•Grow! cup you buy a myriad of plants which can be divided into small portions and cover a larger area. Plants are compact from the start so you will experience a dense and beautiful growth, if you give them the right fertilser and CO2 from the start! The range is perfect for small and medium sized aquariums, and your patience will be rewarded...

Unfortunately mine arrived in poor condition. The water was beetroot red. I put the plant in 10 litres of old aquarium water, and this all went red too. The leaves have the same consistency as old lettuce. I recommend that prior to introducing this to your aquarium, let it sit in a pot of water for a few days. I moved mine to a second load of water which also went red. I think the plant is dying and releasing its pigments. Shame, as two different plants arrived in great condition.


That shouldn’t happen - pls email the office and we’ll sort you out

Arrived in good condition and are already growing well. Only been in the tank for 8 days and are already about 8cm high and have really spread out. Very happy

Good quality foreground plant which is doing pretty well in my planted tank with no co2 set up.

Love these, have had them in two tanks because I like them so much. They grow at a pretty good rate. They come around about 5cm or so, and 4 months in they are at least 20 to 25cm. The leaves are really growing large now compared to how they were before. I'd say at least doubled in size. Even then they are not that big, i'd say approx. 5cm length by 1cm width.
