Alternanthera Reinechii "mini"

  • Deeply red low-growing stem plant
  • One of the very few red foreground plants
  • Sets a strong colour accent

The plant has oval-shaped stalkless leaves which are decussate (each next pair of leaves is perpendicular to the previous one). The leaves are 2.5-3.5 cm long and 0.5-1.5 cm wide. Their upper side is green and the down side is pink or red. In summer small stalkless green-yellow or pinkish flowers appear in the leaf sinuses.

The plant has fibrous root system which grows prolifically. The roots are thin and long, they have filamentary structure.

Under water the plant stem grows vertically and if a tank isn’t deep, the plant quickly gets out of the water. These emergent shoots are used to adapt the plant for growing on the ground. If you put them under water again, they will shed their leaves.

This plant also has a dwarf form called Alternanthera reineckii ‘Mini’, which has brown tinted color and grows not more than 20 cm high. When describing this plant we should mention its unusual phylotaxy. The distance between the leaves is very small, which makes them look fluffy.

A lot of off-shoots grow from parent plant, that’s why gradually expanding Alternanthera reineckii ‘Mini’ forms a large carpet. The shoots grow slowly and they need 2 months to develop.
