The name “Ludwigia Inclinata” covers a wide range of plants, all with wide, submerged leaves. These vary in color by the specific variety of plant, with shades ranging from dark orange to a deep red. The plant is typically found emerged or submerged in bogs or rivers of Central and South America.
In the aquarium, it is best in the mid-ground and requires high light intensity, high nutrients, and high CO2 in order to grow properly. It grows extremely quickly, reaching heights of 12” - 16” in just one week! Its unusually colored leaves allow it to give a good contrast with green plants. While an overall sensitive plant in terms of its light, nutrient, and CO2 needs, the Ludwigia is easy to propagate through simple cutting and replanting of its lateral or top shoots. All-in-all, it is a sophisticated aquarium plant, and if one has the tank size and attentiveness for it, it can add excellent color and diversity.

Tissue culture plants should be removed from the cup as soon as possible. All plants grow on some sort of synthetic growing medium, ranging anywhere from liquid to jelly to firm gel. This should be removed and rinsed off. Gently massage the roots between your fingers until the gel dissolves away. Most plants can be broken up into smaller pieces and spread out in your aquarium. Smaller pieces are easier to plant.
Please note: We source our plants from several different growers and restock on a rotating basis. We aim to keep each species in stock from at least one supplier but not necessarily more. By default, we will send the freshest plant regardless of which grower you select. If you are particular about which grower supplies your plant, please make this clear in your order notes. There may be a wait for you to receive a plant from a specific grower, depending on when we are able to order from them and their availability.
