Alternanthera reineckii variegated also called Telanthera Cardinalis is another Bryan Favorite that he said I should add. I am glad he talked me into it.
The leaves have a nice red to the underside of them when under the right conditions.
What we are stocking now have a great red to them. This plant isn’t quite as easy as Rotala, but it’s close. (I like it more than Rotala as the leaves are thicker and wider)
Think of it like a Ludwigia in terms of ease of keeping. It also has the little roots that run along the stems periodically so it can easily be trimmed down and replanted.
Once it is established you will be impressed with its leaves red color. It is best used as a back ground or mid ground plant if you want to keep it trimmed.
Like many other bunch plants you top Alternanthera reineckii variegated and
plant the top to spread it out. We will send you between 5-7 stems.
This is an awesome plant that may not be available for long. For those of you who jump at the opportunity to add this to your tank, you
will not be disappointed.
THIS PLANT WILL RUN OUT OF STOCK
