Common Name: Creeping Primrose-Willow

 

Variety of Ludwigia repens from North America with striking dark red leaves and stalk. Stems from 20-50 cm and 4-6 cm wide. It provides a great colour contrast to the green shades in the aquarium. An easy to maintain background plant. Due to it's rapid growth and nutrient uptake, it is ideal as a "helping plant" in newer set ups to help prevent algae.

  • Remove the plant from the pot and remove the rock wool and rinse in water. Remove dead leaves. Using aquascaping tweezers, plant in substrate

    Plant in large groups to enhance the decorative effect, and prune regularly with aquascaping scissors to encourage bushy growth. 
    The plant has few demands, but if light is insufficient the lower leaves tend to fall off. In strong light the colour becomes more intense. Although CO2 is not required, adding CO2 will defenitly help.
