DescriptionOf all the species in the genus Ludwigia, this one is the most easily grown and most successful in aquaria, and is thus the most often seen in the hobby. Easy fast growing plant with many shades of red. Undemanding and will grow in almost any conditions. It adapts to differing water parameters, does well with moderate illumination, and growth is rapid.
To get the best colours a good substrate and high lighting are suggested. Under lower light this plant will stay green. A nutritious substrate is advantageous, and regular liquid fertilization will result in strong growth.

I chose to buy from Aquarium Gardens because it had a section dedicated to beginner plants which made it much easier for me to pick out plants as I am new to keeping aquatic plants. The website was really easy to use, plants arrived quickly and are packaged very very well. All look lovely and healthy and had very good quick communication when I had a few questions. Will defintely buy again.
