  • Common Names - Synonyms:
    Alternanthera reineckii ''rosaefolia minor''
    Origin - Distribution:
    • South America
    This miniature version of the well-known Alternanthera is characterized by compact growth and a slower growth rate. It is particularly suitable for small aquariums or as a foreground plant in larger aquascapes. By careful trimming can you create a dense, red-violet carpet approximately 5 to 10 cm high. High light intensity and addition of CO2 improves the plants growth and overall apperance.
