Alternanthera reineckii 'Red Ruby'


In the tropical climate of our greenhouses, selected species are being affectionately cared for and cultivated over several months until they have grown to XXL size. For the establishment and design of larger aquariums, these "solitaires" are perfectly suited and give the impression of a rich landscape right from the start.

Alternanthera reineckii is a diverse species with different color shades. Probably the most beautiful variety is 'Red Ruby' with its intense pink color and the distinctly lighter nerves of its leaves. The compact growth habit increases the appeal of this colorful beauty in the mid to background - depending on aquarium dimensions or decorating style.

Dennerle Plants Liquid Plus optimally supplies the plant with micro- and macronutrients.
