Tissue Culture Plants?


Alternantha Reineckii 'Cardinalis' is a cultivar variant of the Alternantha reineckii species, known for its stunning ornamental qualities. Native to South America, this aquatic plant is highly sought-after by aquarium enthusiasts for its vibrant appearance and unique characteristics.

One of the distinguishing features of Alternantha Reineckii 'Cardinalis' is its narrower leaves compared to the more common 'Rosaefolia' variety. When exposed to intense lighting, these leaves take on deep red hues, adding a warm and captivating element to any aquascape.

This species has an upright growth habit, giving it a more vertical appearance compared to its relative, Alternantha Reineckii 'Ocipus'. Regular trimming can encourage bushier growth, and the clippings can be planted into the substrate to create new clusters, further enhancing the visual appeal of your aquarium.

While CO2 supplementation may not be necessary for the cultivation of Alternantha Reineckii 'Cardinalis', it can significantly enhance the vibrancy and growth of the leaves. Additionally, the use of liquid fertilizers can provide the necessary nutrients for optimal plant health and development.

As an aquatic plant expert, we recommend considering Alternantha Reineckii 'Cardinalis' for your aquarium if you're looking to create a visually striking and captivating aquascape. Its unique characteristics and stunning red hues will undoubtedly elevate the aesthetic appeal of your underwater world.
