Super Red Ludwigia - Ludwigia repens
Broad Leaf Ludwigia (Ludwigia repens) has beautiful red and green foliage with round leaves. It provides stark contrast in planted tanks. It requires high light and a high nutrient content to maintain color.
Bunched plants are typically sold as cuttings that are bound together with a metal plant weight or rubber bands. These individual stalks can be planted by inserting the end of the stalk into the substrate, either individually or - with some plants - in groupings of several stalks. Most bunch plants do not have roots but may grow roots in time. They can be easily pruned by trimming the stalk at the desired height. The trimmings can then be planted as well if desired. Some bunched plants do not need to be planted and may be allowed to float on the water's surface.
