LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT
Ludwigia repens diamond red very beautiful aquarium plant. It generally makes few demands and grows fast, but the red colour is more intense if the light is good. When pruned it develops countless side shoots and becomes more bushy. Suitable as an intermediate or background plant, and most effective when planted in groups. Ludwigia repens diamond red is an easy plant to look after, making it ideal for beginners.
This plant does great either planted or as a floating plant. If left to float each stem will grow stems out the side of it to form a a beautiful network. Very pretty plant.
Great for aquariums and ponds. For those of you with ponds: You can either throw this in un-potted and just let it float around or you can pot this one and place it in a semi-shallow area near the edge and let it creep along the surface of the water and around the edges. If your pond is dirted then plant near the edge in the shallow areas.
Pond Potting instructions: Line a plastic mesh pond pot with high-flow weed matting (available at Bunnings in a grey roll), fill with Aquatic Mix and then cap with a fine washed pebble to stop the aquatic mix from escaping the pot. Remove bottom 3cm or so of leaves from your stems and plant them about 1-3 inches apart. THEN lower the pot into your pond very slowly to avoid making a mess.
