Ludwigia White Aquatic Farmer Tissue Culture
Common Name: Ludwigia White
Ludwigia White, sometimes known as Cuban Ludwigia, is a beautiful aquarium plant that has the potential to grow very large in both submerged and emersed conditions. When grown above the waterline, Ludwigia White leaves are ovated with a green tone. When grown in an aquarium setting, leaves are thin, long, and offer interesting color tones to a planted aquarium. Due to its size, Ludwigia White is best grown in the background of an aquarium.
It is a little more finicky when compared to other Ludwigia species and grows slower, but is well worth the wait if successful! It doesn’t respond well to trimming, and you should always replant the cut shoots in case you need to grow a replacement plant.
- Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state-of-the-art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants. They provide the best option for those who want to ensure that absolutely zero unwanted pests are introduced into the aquarium.
- Remove tissue culture gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.
- Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in the melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
