Alternanthera reineckii ‘Bronze’

“Parrot leaf” types are vivid stem plants. People have been cultivating them for centuries and their popularity has never waned. The ‘Bronze’ colour form is so called due to the olive green to reddish-brown hue of its submerged leaves. These plants are recommended for beginners since they are robust and very easy to look after. The beautiful foliage colours develop even under normal lighting conditions. Individual stems should be planted 3 – 4 cm apart to create a high-impact group.
