Alternanthera specie green

Alternanthera Bettzickiana is a popular choice for beginners due to the fact that it's pretty easy to grow. Most red stem plants can prove difficult to get that vibrant red color without providing high CO2 and micronutrients. This plant can stay vibrant red with relative ease but if nutrients and lighting are severely lacking, the leaves can dull out to an orange hue. It prefers high nitrates and high phosphates so dosing fertilizers such as UNS Plant Food will help speed up growth and keep coloration at its best.

Alternanthera sessilis

This is one of the most beautiful plants you can find for sale in fish shops. Its intense, uniform, violet-red tone is unmatched, but it has one fatal "flaw" - it is NOT a true aquatic plant! This plant is suitable only for terrariums and paludariums. When completely under water, it can only survive for a short period of time, a few weeks at most.
