Ludwigia Dark Red | Potted

Ludwigia plant comes in a variety of forms that differ in leaf shape and color. Ludwigia Dark Red is a round-leaved form with leaves that come in colors, ranging from olive green to dark red. The plant’s colors will be heavily influenced by the light intensity and fertilization.  

Care & Maintenance for Ludwigia Dark Red

Ludwigia Dark Red is a highly adaptable aquarium plant. If provided with good conditions, it will grow fast and reach the water surface in the aquarium. As it reaches the surfaces, the leaves will become smaller and the stems may begin to grow horizontally, creating an attractive overhead view and providing hiding places for small fish or fry.   

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 72-80°F
  • Tank Placement: Midground - Background

In order to keep the plant in its best shape, regular pruning with sharp aquascaping scissors may be required. Neither fertilization nor specialized substrate is required but the plant will grow better and faster if both are provided. Ludwigia Dark Red looks best when planted in groups in the background areas of the aquarium.

Ludwigia Dark Red is also available bare-root. Modern Aquarium also offers other varieties of Ludwigia plant species, including Ludwigia Peruensis, Ludwigia Super Red Mini, Ludwigia Red (Ludwigia Repens), and more.

    Perfect plant
    Posted by Lee Matherly on 17 Aug 2022

    I ordered this and as usual it came in perfect condition snail free. Just put the pot and all in the gravel as it had beautiful long roots through the bottom already. This is my second order from this company and I wouldn’t expect anything but the best. All their plants really make your tank look like a million bucks! Highly recommend this company.

    Great looking plant but it was bent pretty bad in the shipping box, one of them already broke. Not much roots on them. Several pieces together in the pot that I took off before planting. Let’s see if they grow!

    This plant arrived exactly as promised. Its a good sized plant, mine was probably 7 inches tall, well packaged so no damage incurred and arrived in a timely manner.
