Alternanthera is a sun loving annual that is great in landscape use. They will actually tolerate sun or shade but are most colorful in full sun. Alternanthera has a mounding shrubby habit and grows to a height of 10in-14in. Color is best in spring and fall due to shorter day length. Red and yellow varieties work well together due to same height. We also offer Alternanthera in URC (unrooted cuttings).

Growing Tips

Your unrooted cuttings will arrive freshly cut. You will need to plant them immediately and begin a misting cycle to root the cuttings. This will leech the soil of nutrients, so during the propagation phase use a constant feed of 1/3 the normal recommended dosage of fertilizer until well rooted.

To achieve best results with Alternanthera, use well drained soil and plant in full sun. The amount of sunlight on the Alternanthera affects the color of the leaves. Plant 1 plug per 4in pot. Alternanthera does best with low feed until it is established.Once it has a well established root system, feed moderately. Alternanthera shouldn't be left outside below 60 degree temperature.

Unrooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families, but most can be described as tip cuttings (ivy are leaf-and-eye stem cuttings not tips) that stick nicely in small plug trays such as the 105-plug tray we use (some varieties are better suited for a 50 cell tray, i.e. Angelwing Begonia, Bougainvillea, Setcrecea, etc.). Please do not order unrooted cuttings unless you are an experienced propagator with mist systems and proper temperature control.
