Alternanthera reineckii 'mini' (Potted)
(1 review)
0.50 LBS
Current Stock:

Miniature version of the well known Alternanthera. Characterized by compact growth and a slower growth rate. It is particularly suitable for small aquariums or makes a nice foreground centerpiece in  larger aquariums. Frequent trimmings (keeping between 1" - 3") help to create a dense, red violet carpet. High light and the addition of co2 will improve the plants growth, color and overall appearance.


Comes in a 2" round pot. Simply take off the pot, remove the rock wool and plant in your substrate.


Placement: foreground

lighting: Medium - high

    Pretty but needs some care

    It's slowly getting some nicer leaves and gaining just a bit of height. Unfortunately it came not as nice as I'd like. I lost a couple of stems just because they weren't healthy. The ones that are left are making a nice rebound.
