Alternanthera reineckii 'Red'


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.

A real "plant classic in red" - that's a good way to describe this stem plant. Its XXL size is ideal for aquarium from 100 cm edge length. As with all red-leaved stem plants, good lighting, sufficient CO2 and a good supply of nutrients via the water column are particularly important.

Dennerle Plants Liquid Plus optimally supplies the plant with micro and macro nutrients.
