Alternanthera reineckii var. 'roseafolia' is a very decorative "red" plant.  Commonly know as Telanthera Alternanthera reineckii has a bronze color on top of the leaf and the deep purple colored underside of the leaf. Alternanthera reineckii offers a nice contrast to the mostly green plants in an aquarium. Although most red aquarium plants are somewhat difficult to grow in an aquarium, Alternanthera reineckii is relatively easy. With adequate light and fertilizer Alternanthera reineckii grows vigorously and with good color. 

Tissue cultured plants are disease free and snail free. Tissue culture are recommended for more experienced plant enthusiast. Due to the short roots, we recommend attaching small portions to rocks or driftwood.
