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.

Arrived in timely fashion with bright, vivid reds and purples. Clearly Aquarium Gardens maintain their plants to the peak of their ability. Generous number of stems supplied, so great value as well. Thank you very much :)

This plant arrived in pretty good condition (was a little bashed about I blame the courier) However it is in my tank acclimatizing and starting to perk up given a bit of time It will look absolutely stunning
