What aquatic plants will still be red when grown emersed?


What aquatic plants will still be red when they are grown emersed?

I'm still fairly new to emersed growth and want to add some red plants to my vivarium. So far, I have only added aquatic plants and I'd prefer to maintain that "theme". It seems like most of the red aquatic plants I see on the web, turn green when grown emersed. Any suggestions for aquatic plants that are red when emersed?

Here is a picture of the tank so far:

Alternanthera reineckii- It had flowers(and was very red/pink) when I got it so i'm pretty sure it was grown emersed. I also got lots of baby plants from seeds that mustve came off it. From Aquarium Plants

I'll agree with the A reineckii it grows well emersed and keeps the red undersides of the leaves, oh yeah it likes my tank, lol..

Thanks, the plant is actually a Philodendron bipinnatifidum mine is a couple years old and it gets bigger and bigger leaves every year, right now the stems are 5' tall with 18"-24" leaves. It will probably outgrow it's home in another couple years. Here is a better picture of it.

Polygonum Sao Paulo is reddish pink.

Polygonum Kawagoneum gets reddish under high light emersed tanks.

I had a friend grow P. Kawagoneun emersed but it was very green. But I don't think he had much light over it. I sometimes wonder how many of the green-when-emersed plants just need more light to show their red coloration.

Thanks for the input everyone.

Pogostemon stellatus 'narrow leaf' has a bronze color when grown emersed. Bacopa salzmannii also has a reddish color. Check out my avatar for the B. salzmannii.
