Alternanthera Lilacina (Purple version of our best seller!)
This Alternanthera is almost as easy as out BEST SELLING Alteranthera. This Plant give you MORE pinkish purple to it...
Like most plants, the fancier looking they get, the harder they get to keep. This Alternanthera is just slightly more demanding then our Best Selling Alteranthera Reineckii. But some things are worth the bit more work :)
We love the purplish hue it has. Just a tad more light will make this plant a show stopper in your aquarium.
Minimal fertilization will help but is not required.
NOTE: Like all of our plants. These Alteranthera are grown under water and ready to POP in your aquarium. (While we don't have a ton of reviews on this plant- yet- read the other Alteranthera reviews... these are made to FLY in your tank)
Get them while have them. This plant is a 4 on a difficulty scale of 1 to 10.
This is a BACKGROUND Plant.
Healthy and leaves small root .Color is stunning and haven't had any melt. As always Dirty D and the Planted tank posse rule. Customer for life.
Mine came in beat up, ugly and small but I hope it takes off. I was hoping they would be in better condition.
Wow! Look at the roots on these suckers. Wow! Look how they pop against the greens. Wow! Look at how HEALTHY they are. You won't find this at a big box aquarium shop. These have been the tank only about a week, so they're not really established yet - what you're seeing is more or less the way I received it, and it's the reason I am a loyal customer. Get a good grow light - Dustin's are great - and you'll be amazed with these red leaves every time you walk by the tank.
Just love the color, lovely plant
This is absolutely stunning!
