The Alternanthera Reineckii 'Lilacina' is a beautiful variety of Alternanthera Reineckii. The stems are a striking reddish-purple colour that contrast well against their brownish green leaves. Compared to other Alternanthera Reineckii, Lilacina has narrower and longer leaves. When grown under ideal conditions, new leaves will have hues of pink to red colour. Being a stem plant and due to its growth patterns, Alternanthera Lilacina is best suited as a mid or background plant.

 

To promote healthy growth, Alternanthera Lilacina should be planted in a tank with high quality plant substrate and a strong light. CO2 injection is highly recommended to achieve the most vibrant colours from this plant. Regular trimmings will help keep Alternanthera Lilacina compact and healthy. These trimmings can then be replanted as a form of propagation.
