Alternanthera Reineckii, also known as Scarlet Reineckii, is a red-stemmed plant that produces different leaf forms and multiple shades of color, ranging from olive-green to brownish on the surface of the leaf to red or pinkish on the underside. Iron supplementation will help the plant to maintain or produce more intense red coloration. The plant is easy to care for is provided with proper conditions, which include good lighting, good substrate and fertilization. In aquariums, consider planting A. Reineckii in small, well-spaced groups as their red coloration provides good contrasting and focal point, especially against other green colored plants.
I love these they’re great and all of my friends and family think they look great in all four of my aquariums.
The journey over here knocked some leaves off but nothing that wont grow back. It adds a beautiful pop to the background of my tank too
They came really quickly and they were nice and red as advertised the bunches were full and they looked great.
Healthy looking plants, not too red yet. We'll see how they grow out!
I received my plant order yesterday and I am very pleased with them. The scarlet temple range from 6-10 inches tall. They are pinkish and I’m sure with a lil time, root tabs, fertilizers, and iron they will become brighter. I’m pleased overall with my plant
This is a very pretty addition to a planted aquarium. I planted mine a week ago and it’s brightening considerably. With more light it will develop it’s color, so I recommend to plant it well and be patient as it develops.(: Really pretty plant if you’re looking to add color to your aquarium.
I wasn't too sure about having plants shipped, but these scarlet temple are beautiful!!!! After two weeks I've already got tons of off shoot roots!!
