For that price I could have someone trim my normal sized 6.99 PetSmart Alternanthera reinecki for me and wont need the mini.
I know, right
That stuff is $8.99 around here...I bought a pack of wendtii green maybe a year and a half ago and it was $6.99 back then, but next time I went back they'd jacked it up. They seem to leave them on the shelf longer too now; I usually see a lot of them in various stages of melting down in the pack.
My LFS has decent quality in their plants and fish, but not much depth in selection of either, which is usually how I end up at the big-box stores in the first place.
I was only going to sell it for around $10 a stem until I noticed that it was going for $50 a stem and someone bought them. I had never seen this sold in the US so I had no idea what the going rate was per stem. I just thought shoot if that is the going rate and it sold in less than a day I REALLY don't mind parting with some.
I know this is an old thread but I just bought some Alternanthera Reineckii mini from Tropica through a European Dealer and I'm not sure how to plant it.
I received maybe 8 small plants about 1 1/4" tall with very small but healthy roots.
I have 2" of organic potting soil substrate with a couple of inches of Quartz Sand on top of that in the plant area, although I can cut down on the sand and build up the substrate closer to the surface if necessary
