The multicolored parrot leaf Alternanthera reineckii 'variegated' is a breeding strain of Alternanthera reineckii from South America. This aquarium plant is quite robust and makes few demands. Ideal for the middle ground to background in the aquarium. It grows at a medium-fast rate and responds very well to a pruning. If it is trimmed regularly, the multi-coloured parrot leaf turns into a pretty bush.

The top of the brightly coloured leaves is olive brown, the leaf veins are surrounded by a bright purple. The shoot is radiant dark pink. At the bottom, the leaf veins appear bright pink. The stems of this parrot leaf are bright pink to purple.

The multi-coloured parrot leaf grows much better and better with CO2, but can also be cultivated without CO2 supply. A good supply of nutrients and medium to strong light are prerequisites for intense plant colours in Alternanthera reineckii 'variegated'.

You can easily multiply this parrot leaf. A 10 cm long shoot is separated and simply stuck in the ground. From this grows a whole new plant.

The stem plant is just a fantastic looking splash of colour for your aquarium. Alternanthera reineckii 'variegated' also fits nicely into the background of nano-basins.
