Common Name: AR, Alternanthera Lilacina

The Alternanthera Reineckii 'Lila' is reddish purple stem plant that makes for the perfect mid or background addition to your aquarium.  Like the other AR varieties, this one exhibits the same captivating red coloration that adds a refreshing change from the usual green aquascape.  

Notes:

  • Alternanthera provides great coverage for sensitive fauna species and is a relatively easy choice for beginners who are looking for colored aquarium plants.
  • Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state of the art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants. They provide the best option for those who want to ensure that absolutely zero unwanted pests are introduced into the aquarium.
  • Remove tissue culture gel before planting.  Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.  
  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
