    • Deeply red plant with lightly patterned leaves
    • Suitable for setting striking colour accents
    • Relatively compact growth habit
    A new Alternanthera variant. This colourful, well-growing plant is characterised by its vivid pink leaves with lighter-coloured leaf veins. Under water, it has a relatively compact growth habit, comparable with Alternanthera reineckii 'Mini', and it is great as colourful accent in the middle ground or in the foreground, given that it is trimmed regularly. Like most Alternanthera variants, it prefers good light and an abundant nutrient supply as well as additional CO2 injection for good growth and intensive colours.
