Purple parrot leaf Alternanthera reineckii "Purple" gets its name from its bright purple leaf undersides. The upper sides of the leaves are colored wine red to dark red. Under intense light and with CO2 fertilization, this coloration is more pronounced; under less light, the plants tend to turn green.
Intense light also promotes the compact growth of purple parrot leaf. Water roots form at the leaf nodes, and this phenomenon can be easily exploited for propagation. To do this, cut off a shoot and replant it. Thanks to the roots, it quickly takes root.
This magnificent stem plant is well suited for the middle ground to background thanks to its slow length growth. It tolerates pruning very well.
Our recommendation: For magnificent plant growth, we recommend premium nutrient medium when setting up a new plant NatureHolic GroundBooster
