Alternanthera reineckii 'Pink'

Common Name: Alternanthera Reineckii Pink (Tropica Potted Plant)

Alternanthera reineckii Pink is a South American native. AR Pink leaves have a pink underside, which makes them stand out in an aquarium filled with green plants. Stems grow to be around 25 to 50 centimeters tall. When exposed to bright light and provided with regular fertilizer, especially iron the leaves change color to red.  It's simple to propagate by cutting off the terminal bud and planting it in the substrate, also resulting in the mother plant to become more bushy since additional side shoots are produced.
