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.

Benefits of in Vitro plants 

In Vitro plants are environmentally friendly and help protect nature. The plants are not collected from the wild but produced in a lab thanks to tissue culture propagation. In Vitro plants are free from rock wool, pesticides, algae and other unwanted organisms. The plants start growing immediately after planting and have less trouble adjusting to the submerse state than plants that are grown in a traditional emerse way.  

How to use in Vitro plants
