The “Alternanthera Reineckii Mini “ for me is a great middle ground plant, I put my plant between 2 black lava rocks which makes the red color of the leaves pop with color, the size is great with just enough height to fill an empty space, again with a lot of color, an easy plant to keep, I do not use CO2.
