          This plant is one week into its new aquarium and it is doing very great. I did my research on this plant before buying so I can get the best out of it. The growth is fast and the color is nice. I find the stem to be more sturdy than other stem plants as well. I don't use any CO2 in this tank and I use the same lighting that came with the aquarium when I purchased it. This is my new favorite plant and I will buy more for my other tanks.

          Let there be some Red...

          Decided to add some Red colored plants to my 10 gallon tank. Going to mix the Alternanthera Reinecki in between the Staurogyne Repens . My plants arrived individually housed in a secure sealed plastic slip and there was no leaking what so ever. Ive only had them in the tank for a week or so but already there are roots running from the sides and front of the stems.I have pretty good lighting and Co2 and by dosing THRIVE twice a week it might make for a successful planting. This is my second attempt at planting a red plant and with the information I received from APF,Im hoping for the best.

          They were Gobbled up!

          They were pretty when I put them in, but by the end of the week my goldfish gobbled it all up. Literally not even a stalk survived. It was packed very nicely and arrived very quickly.
