Alternanthera Reineckii Pink "Mini", or AR Pink Mini, is a dwarf variant of the well recognized Alternanthera Reineckii. 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. Its miniature growth allows it to be used in both larger and smaller aquariums as either a foreground, midground, or background plant depending on how tall you let it grow. However, it is mostly used by aquascapers as a foreground or midground plant.


NOTE: You will receive 3-4 stems, generally about 2-3 inches in length, cut fresh from our personal aquarium!
