Ludwigia Brevipes

SKU: LUD-AJ-AP-3 Category:


Growing this narrow-faced Ludwigia is not particularly difficult. It looks best in stronger lighting, good supply of micro- and macronutrients and CO2 additions. Low levels of nitrates, along with relatively high levels of phosphates, enhance the reddish to orange-brown color of the shoots. 22 to 26 °C are optimal, a temperature range of 12 to 28 °C is tolerated. Its growth is relatively rapid and frequent pruning supports its bushy growth. It is easily propagated by cuttings.

Ludwigia brevipes looks the most effect when planted in a bush in the middle, also in the foreground when the aquarium is large enough. With its reddish tones, it contrasts well with green plants such as Micranthemum umbrosum and Bacopa australis. This North American Ludwigia is also interesting in the surface form for palcasers and Wabi-Kusa. It grows creeping in its surface shape, developing a dark green carpet with small light yellow flowers.
