It is Alt. Reinekii. It show nice reds in higher light. Very easy plant to keep.
I am propagating a bunch now. They got out of hand in the display tank.

Hmmm, got that all over my tanks and don't get anything quite that vibrant. Do you fertilize heavily, or lightly to lower nitrogen availability? Using CO2?

Thanks fo the info. That explains the nice intense color.
I did the high-CO2 tank for a while. Yep, been there and slipped up when my CO2 ran low, still fighting the BBA that resulted! Still using CO2, just more as an enhancemeent to growth instead of maxing everything out.

LOL Co2 can be a curse, or a cure. Very unpredictable stuff.

Thank You!! I like it a lot to. Makes a nice contrast to all the green. I harvested a bunch a few days ago and have it in one of my grow out tanks. Getting it ready to sell!!
