Alternanthera reineckii 'Mini'

Info

This new variety only came onto the market a few years ago, and makes a colorful foreground highlight. In emersed hydroponic systems, its growth is very similar to other Alternanthera varieties. The compact, miniature format only develops under water. This little beauty comes highly recommended as a splash of color for Nano Cubes. For a strong color contrast, combine with a carpet of light green Hemianthus. Note that a very light, well-lit location is essential.
