    Been looking for Alternanthera reineckii 'Variegated' in the UK and came across this from tropica, can anybody I.D this as the same species and its just a trade name or are they a totally different species?


    I borrowed this image of Alternanthera reineckii 'Variegated' from Fablau's journal


    AR_Var.jpg


    And these are Alternanthera reineckii Rosanervig images from tropica's website

    nicpapa i have a rosenervig coming in the next few days, it grows low and compact like the mini but with the variegated​ patterns, if its the same as the labelled sp variegated I'm unsure but will find out here or by buying both :)


    Synonyms include:


    Alternanthera sp. 'Rosanervig'


    Alternanthera reineckii 'Red Ruby'


    Alternanthera reineckii rosanervig is farmed by tropica so it should be pretty easy to purchase from your local / online supplier, if you have trouble finding it let me know and I will help you out.

    I think Variegated and Rosanervig are the same.


    You can tell Mini and Variegated from regular (besides size) by looking at leaf color. Regular AR has more olive tones to the upper side of leaf with the shocking red remaining on the underside. Mini and Variegated show a lot more vibrant red color on upper side.

    I’d be careful when looking for this plant as it’s not always gonna grow the variegated leaves. Like L. White, AR ‘Variegated’ is not a stable mutation of the plant

    I wish to still have that fantastic plant: dead. I killed it well during my Summer vacation :(

    Burr, Vin, whenever you have it to give away, please, let me know, willing to pay $$$!

    Are you on facebook? If so, join High-Tech Planted Tanks and also join the plant sale pages to look there.
