Alternanthera reineckii ''lilacina'' needs plenty
of light to grow and form dark-red leaves. In open aquariums it grows
willingly up through the surface, and like other difficult plants growth
improves considerably if CO2 is added. Shortage of
micronutrients results in pale leaves. Like other stem plants A.
reineckii ''Lilacina'' is best in groups.
