This cosmopolitan stem plant turns red easier and is smaller than the well-known Ludwigia repens ’Rubin’. Each stalk becomes 2-4cm wide and 10-30cm high. The Ludwigia sp. willingly creates side shoots, but cutting increases the amount and leaves the plant even closer. The cut-off shoots can be replanted and they quickly generate new roots.
With good levels of light and CO2, this plant will flourish and change the colour portfolio of your plant. Planted alongside green plants or dark rocks only highlights its beauty.
