Alternanthera Reineckii Lilacina is a long-time and well-known aquarium plant species in the planted tank hobby. Known for its bold coloration, this aquatic plant presents magenta hues with a purplish underside on its leaves. Originating from South America, this aquatic plant requires medium to high light levels along with a nutrient-dense aquarium soil and CO2 injection to produce a noticeable difference in appearance and obtain the desired look. When given optimal conditions, Alternanthera Reineckii Lilacina will reach and breach the water's surface with ease and potentially produce blooms that are a lovely sight to witness! AR Lilacina is well-suited for Dutch-style planted aquariums and is easily a top contender for aquarists who love color in a planted aquarium.
