Alternanthera Bettzickiana Aurea

Current Promotion
Alternanthera Bettzickiana Aurea is a terrarium, vivarium, or bog plant that is sometimes used as aquatic plant decoration even though it's not a true aquatic plant. Under a proper environment, it can only be submerged for several months. After that, it should be grown emerged for a few months again so they can restore the energy they lose before it has the ability and strength to adapt and survive to underwater life for a period of time. 

Because of the ability to survive underwater for a long period of time, a lot of hobbyists used this plant as an alternative for other true aquatic plants because they claimed it can survive or even grow a few inches taller and develop roots in their aquarium longer than some of the other true aquatic plants.
When grow emerged, above water. It should be kept in a consistent high humid with wet soil. Especially when they are in the recovery stage or when their environment is changed from underwater to above water.

          Nice Packaging

          I ordered from other sellers, and the plants always came in a little bit yellow from the heat, but APF have the best packaging I have ever seen with online plant orders, and the plants looks so vibrant and healthy. I am going to come back for more plants if I needed any.

          Arrived in great condition due to great packaging! Very satisfied. I believe it's doing good in my aquarium, one of the snails uprooted it so I had to put it deeper into the gravel so hopefully that didn't hurt the plant at all.

          Great plant

          Even though the plant came late (post office problem not APF),it was in great shape due to their great packing. A great company to do business with.
