Among the several varieties of
Ludwigia sp. Plants, this is the smallest one. With intense red colour of the
small and round leaves, it will attract everyones attention.
This plants name comes from the fact that the leaves stays bright red even under medium light conditions. It is not high demand plant (CO2 injection works really well but it is not essential) and with a high growth rate you can quickly achieve a beautiful red accented area in any aquarium. If you want more drama plant it between some bright green plants! That is the way it is frequently used in Dutch style aquascapes. This plant creates a great environment for shrimp and small fish to feel safe and secure.
Tissue cultured plants are cultured in sterile environments. They are free of snails and disease pathogens. They have an extended shelf life and a perfect for aquascaping. These plants are small and have short roots so they can be challenging to plant. Gluing or using thread to attach portions to small pieces of rock, then submerging the rock in to the substrate works well.
