Since Samolus parviflorus red is a recent addition to the aquarium plant trade, it is a rare plant with lesser availability. It looks similar to Alternanthera reineckii in many ways, but the leaves differ. The leaves of Samolus parviflorus Red are rounder.
It is an easy-to-grow stem plant that looks attractive when grown as a mid-ground plant. Under high light conditions, Samolus parviflorus Red develops bright red color. The reddish hint, along with the orange and green color, comes under low light conditions.
The temperature should be maintained around 25 degrees C. It can grow well even in brackish water. The growth rate is slow, and the light demand is high. Even though it can survive without additional carbon dioxide, supplementing CO2 will intensify its growth.
