Description: Alternanthera reineckii ‘Purple’ from South America needs plenty of light to grow and form dark-red leaves. Stems grow to 15-40 cm. In open aquariums it grows easily to the the water surface, and like other difficult plants growth improves considerably if CO2 is added. Shortage of micronutrients results in pale leaves. Like other stem plants Alternanthera reineckii ‘Purple’ looks best in groups.
