Common Name: Ludwigia Repens
Ludwigia Repens is an easy plant to keep, making it a great option for tank geeks who want to add color to their aquascape without the hassle associated with the colorful plants. These plants are ideal for the front zones of the tank. Their vivid color creates a superb focal point. Ludwigia plants have oval leaves that grow in alternating pairs along a tilted stem. The leaves are gold, orange, or red, depending on tank conditions. These plants are very attractive when planted in bunches of 10-12 stems.
Ludwigia is a versatile plant, but to get the desirable bright colors, you must provide high lighting and nutrient levels. High iron content will bring out more red tones in the plant. CO2 injection is not required for the cultivation of this plant, but can help it grow more robustly. The plant can be grown submersed or emersed, but it is much more difficult to cultivate in the emersed form.
Propagation can be achieved by taking cuttings from the main stem of the plant that are replanted into the substrate.
Family Name: Onagraceae
Co2: Not necessary

I bought this a couple months ago it came in really healthy and has grown an insane amount since. I keep it with almost no fertilizer and no CO2, it's become a floating plant because for whatever reason I have a hard time keeping it in the substrate and I have to trim it and move it otherwise it takes up almost all the surface and light in the tank! It has been perfect for my guppy fry to hind in, and it has developed a beautiful red color.
