Alternanthera reineckii

Type: Stem
Position: Midground, Background
Origin: Cultivar
Growth rate: Medium
Height: 50-20cm
Light demand: High
CO2 : Medium
Difficulty: Medium

Alternanthera Reineckii is one of the most popular plants that we sell It grows to quite a considerable height and boasts deep pink lance shaped leaves that contrast well against an otherwise green planted setting. Because of this, it is a perennial favourite for aquascapers trying to create a dutch style planted tank. This particular aquarium plant requires bright lighting and iron rich fertiliser to stay the colour that it is, but co2 is not as important, though recommended. We also recommend using proper planting substrate as it will already contain the nutrients required by this aquarium plant. It is a truly beautiful plant, but can be a little challenging to grow.

If you require any advice on keeping these plants, please contact us and speak to member of the team.
