Light Requirements: Provide your Alternanthera 'Dentata' with bright, indirect light to maintain its vibrant foliage and encourage optimal colouration. While it appreciates good light, avoid exposing it to direct sunlight for extended periods, as this can cause leaf burn.

Soil and Potting: Plant your Alternanthera 'Dentata' in a well-draining potting mix to ensure healthy root development. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil is suitable for promoting vigorous growth and vibrant foliage.
Fertilizing: Feed your Alternanthera 'Dentata' with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every four to six weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). This will encourage lush growth and maintain its stunning colouration.
