LUDWIGIA PALUSTRIS

This cosmopolitan stem plant turns red easier and is smaller than the well-known Ludwigia repens ’Rubin’.

Each stalk becomes 2-4 cm wide and 10-30 cm high. The plant willingly creates side shoots, but cutting increases the amount and leaves the plant even denser. The cut-off shoots can be replanted and they quickly generate new roots.

The plant becomes intensely red and grows better, when placed in light and with added CO2.

The easy plants:

  • These plants can thrive and grow well in low-light aquariums.

  • The time expenditure per week is less than ½ hour because the plants grow slowly.

  • Bottom substrate at the beginning and liquid fertiliser for weekly use.
