Awesome purple option if your want a change from red.
The Alternanthera Reineckii ‘Lilacina’ is a beautiful variety of Alternanthera Reineckii. The stems are a striking reddish-purple color that contrast well against their brownish green leaves. Compared to other Alternanthera Reineckii, Lilacina has narrower and longer leaves. When grown under ideal conditions, new leaves will have hues of pink to red color. Being a stem plant and due to its growth patterns, Alternanthera Lilacina is best suited as a mid or background plant. Similar to other AR varieties, the captivating red coloration will definitely add a refreshing change from the usual green aquascape.
