This is an EASY Hot Selling RED Plant

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.

Suggested Supplement: Iron

Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)

Where to Plant:

Total background plant. Remove the binding. Plant bottom of stem directly into substrate.

Alternanthera Reineckii stems were pretty barren and they looked like palm trees but overall useable for new growth and propagation. Dwarf Sag’ were basically two shoots only but again useable. Not great specimens but usable.

To early too tell

They arrived in a timely manner, came packaged in a wet newspaper to keep them moist. Awesome. The tops of some of them were wilted, but should be taken over with new growth as they get settled in. Looking to accent the backgrown when the jungle Val I bought from here get taller, but time will tell. I'm hopeful this will turn out as I envisioned. So far they look like they are doing their thing, and that is thriving. Dosed every other day and I will see how they turn out. Placed in a 55 gallon tank behing the driftwood.

So excited for colors!

I'm so excited to have some red in my new tank. I'm just hoping that I can keep the iron up to keep them red! Amazing bunch and healthy roots.
