Alternanthera Reineckii "Regular"
We've grown this underwater for over a month. They have roots and are awesome. Don't take my word for it, read the reviews.
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 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.
Try Our Growth Juice for all of your fertilizer needs.
Suggested Supplement: Iron
Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Alternanthera reineckii is a 2. The only reason Alternanthera reineckii is a 2 is because it has slighly thin leaves which might cause a few to fall on in transition from our tanks to yours.
Can handle low lighting, grows faster and looks better in higher light.
Where to Plant:
Total background plant. Remove the binding. Plant bottom of stem directly into substrate.
Temps: This plant can handle the high 60s but it enjoys an even 70-74 degrees!
Beautiful red AR. Will absolutely be buying more plants from you guys.
Didn’t receive all that I ordered
These were a big, beautiful, healthy bunch of plants. I was able to divide them to make a few nice looking groupings and the texture and color were a great addition to my tank.
They seem to really like the Growth Juice as after only 5 days they have grown nice purplish red tips.
This is my first time ordering plants online and I was soooo nervous about it but everything went smoothly plants arrive nicely packed nicely ship they are looking great so now it’s up to me to keep them alive 😎 I will definitely order plants again Thank you so much for making this such a fantastic experience👍🏼
