Alternanthera reineckii var. 'roseafolia' is a decorative "red" plant. Commonly know as Telanthera Alternanthera reineckii has a bronze color on top of the leaf and the deep purple colored underneath the leaf. Alternanthera reineckii offers an excellent contrast to the mostly green plants in an aquarium. Although most red aquarium plants are somewhat difficult to grow in an aquarium, Alternanthera reineckii is relatively easy. With adequate light, co2, and fertilizer, Alternanthera reineckii thrive.

Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that generally don't come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry, although at times, my stem plants may come with roots because I have been growing them out. All stem plants come with a plant weight that holds the plant in place and is safe for your tank.
To plant, just let the weight lay on your substrate, and the stems will grow roots throughout your substrate. You can also plant the tips, about 1/4" in your substrate if you prefer.
