Alternanthera Reineckii Rosanervig has bright pink leaves with light veining. This aquatic plant, like other species in the Alternanthera family, grows best when given good aquarium lighting and a consistent fertiliser regimen. Because this species is slightly more sensitive and has a softer stem, it should be handled with caution. If properly cared for, this aquatic plant can be used as a background in smaller aquariums or as a midground in larger planted tanks. Before planting into your aquarium substrate, remove the lead weight and sponge from the stems and plant each stem individually.

Alternanthera provide excellent coverage for sensitive species and are a good choice for beginners looking for coloured aquarium plants. Make no drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will cause the aquarium plant to melt and rot. Better growth will result from CO2 injection and high-quality aquarium soil.

Is Alternanthera reineckii simple to grow?
Although most red aquarium plants are difficult to grow, Alternanthera reineckii is relatively simple. Alternanthera reineckii grows vigorously and with good colour with adequate light and fertiliser, and adding CO2 will make these plants bright red.

Is CO2 required for Alternanthera reineckii?
Reineckia Alternanthera (these are grown in a CO2 injected tank). In a non-injected tank, these will grow normally, but the coloration will be more muted. The undersides of the leaves will always be bright red, whereas the topside requires more lighting and good growth conditions to show well.

Is Alternanthera reineckii spreading quickly?
Alternanthera reineckii grows slowly and is prone to algae. The true test of growing them well is frequently maintaining an algae-free environment over time.

What is the best place to plant Alternanthera reineckii?
Alternanthera reineckii requires very bright tank lighting. This is the factor that influences the colour of the leaves and the overall appearance of the plant. This plant thrives in natural light, particularly direct sunlight. Keep in mind that filament bulbs have the potential to burn shoots that grow above the tank water.

Is fertiliser required for Alteranthera Reineckii?
Alternanthera are colourful and easy to care for when grown in the right conditions, which include nutrient-rich substrate, regular fertilising (especially nitrate, phosphate, and iron), 30ppm CO2, medium to high lighting, and regular trimming and pruning.

Alteranthera Reineckii is it a stem plant?
Because of its crimson-red and brown hues, Alternanthera Reineckii is a popular aquatic herb in the Dutch aquascape. This bushy and well-branched stem plant, also known as AR mini by aquarists, can be grown in miniature form.

Alteranthera Reineckii mini grows to what size?
For optimum growth, it, like other stem plants, requires medium to high light with the addition of CO2. It can grow emersed or submerged and can reach a height of 8 inches.”
