Product information
Purple parrot leaf - Alternanthera lilacina - pot
The purple parrot leaf Alternanthera reineckii "Lilacina" is a beautiful, proven variety of Alternanthera reineckii. It fits into almost any aquarium and is not particularly demanding in terms of water values. With its brightly colored leaf undersides, you can create surprising accents in the aquarium. - Garnelio
Origin: South America
C02: without CO2 fertilization
Light requirements: medium
Growth rate: medium
Basin placement: Middle ground
Type: Pot
Genus: Alternanthera

The purple-leaved parrot leaf Alternanthera reineckii "Lilacina" enchants with olive-green to brown-red leaf tops and intensely purple leaf undersides and stems. At high light intensity and CO2 supply these colors are more intense and the plant grows more compact, under weaker light the Lilacina tends to turn green.

To propagate, simply pinch off a side shoot or shoot tip and replant. Thanks to the roots that soon form, the new plant quickly takes root.

This beautiful stem plant fits very well in the middle ground to background, depending on the aquarium size. It does not grow particularly fast and is easy to cut back.

Our recommendation: For a splendid plant growth we recommend the premium nutrient medium when setting up a new aquarium NatureHolic GroundBooster
