Ludwigia Repens sp LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT
Ludwigia Repens is an amphibious plant that will grow either partially or fully submerged in the tank. When fully submerged, leaf color ranges from dark green to brownish red or deep red. The tops of the leaves are usually olive green while the undersides contain the red pigments. These plants benefit from regular additions of CO2, iron rich fertilizers, and trace elements.
Ludwigia Repens, or Water Primrose, is a beautiful freshwater aquarium plant that originates from the tropical North and Central American waters. It is an amphibious plant that will grow either partially or fully submersed. In its fully submersed form, its spade-shaped leaves range in color from dark green to brownish-red. The top of the leaves are typically olive green in color, whereas the undersides are reddish-brown to deep red. The vibrancy of this plant depends greatly on the amount of light it receives. When poorly illuminated, the colors will fade.
Reproduction occurs during the warm season when the plant is fully mature. Shortly thereafter, seeds will develope and drop to the substrate, where they will begin to grow into a new plant. To propogate the Ludwigia repens, simply cut branches or the top of the plant, and plant the stem into the substrate. Be sure to remove the leaves from the last node on the bottom of the stem to insure proper root growth.
Propagation of this species is easily achieved from cuttings. Simply cut healthy mature plants with scissors and remove any leaves from the bottom 1-2 inches. Replant and new root growth will form from the last node on the stem.
