I concur. There are a number of variations and common names. Alternanthera reineke, Alternanthera reineke "roseafolia", Alternanthera roseafolia, Red Temple, Telanthera all usually refer to some variation of Alternanthera reineke.

i had this plant and i don't know the exact name. too many similar names. anyway, they're pretty hard or i just didn't have the skills way back then. they grow roots like crazy, even from the internodes.
