Alternanthera lilacina

This plant belongs to the Amaranthacae family and is one of the more difficult of the Alternanthera to grow. To get good strong growth and red colour, bright light and a good supply of micronutrients are needed (CO2 helps). Alternanthera lilacina does best in an open aquarium where it can grow through the surface.
