Alternanthera Red Broad Leaf is a rare variant in the Alternanthera family. This aquatic stem plant features red stems and ribs alongside varying greenish-yellow hues. Like most Alternanthera species, Alternanthera Red Broad Leaf is a great beginner red plant as they're typically easier to keep than other red aquatic plants. Most red stem plants can prove difficult to get that vibrant red color without providing high CO2 and micronutrients. This plant can retain its reddish characteristics with relative ease but if nutrients and lighting are severely lacking, it has the potential to dull out.
