Alternanthera reineckii ‘mini’ is a miniature version of the Alternanthera Reineckii. The plant is characterized by compact growth and a slower growth rate, so it is particularly suitable for small aquariums or as a foreground plant in larger aquascapes. By trimming, it is possible to create a dense, red violet carpet. The plant requires medium to high light with the addition of CO2 for optimum growth. It can be grown emersed or submersed and reaches up to 8 inches tall. Propagating the plant is like any other stem plant, simply cut the stem and replant.
