A beautiful red stem plant with red veins running through each leaf. It is not very difficult to grow but does need a stable environment with C02, NPK, TE. Easy to propagate, will produce multiple side shoots, trim each stem off as desired or let grow for a large red/orange bush.

This is one of my favourite plants right now. Tends to go orangey/yellow. Very striking as a contrast plant. As mentioned above, it loves CO2 and also seems to like like higher than average nitrate to bring out it's best colour.

Very nice plant with a medium growth rate. Cutting the stem really encourages the growth of side shoots.
