MeCasa 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

Thank you
MeCasa

plantbrain Well, frankly it's not some super cool plant, it's not much different than the normal type near as I can tell and I got it from the vendors that grow it in the EU.

It is not like Ludwigia "Red" or downoi, or Lud tornado or Needle leaf Java, windlov etc when they first came out.

jnaz 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.

Pure genius.

It does look a bit like Spanish moss now that you mention it.

I'll sell you all my plants here for 500$ ahaha. No, not really. Some moderator might think I'm selling in the wrong sub form and not realize this too is also a joke.



I got my plants for Free.

But I traded some plants they wanted bad.

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.
