Alternanthera Reineckii 'Rosaefolia' TC Bag
Common Name: AR Rosaefolia
AR Rosaefolia is one of many variants of Alternanthera Reineckii. This variety grows taller and have more elongated leaved when compared to the typical AR. The leaves are usually greenish brown on the surface that contrast beautifully with the striking reds on the underside. A distinguishing feature AR Rosaefolia is its white vein-like patterns. The final colorations and appearance of the plant will depend on its growing environments. High light and injected CO2 will yield a healthier and more colorful plant. Due to the bright colorations, AR Rosaefolia is commonly used for Dutch style scape, but will add a pop of color to any tank. If given an adequate transition period, AR Rosaefolia can be grown both emersed and submersed.
