Ludwigia Ovalis | Potted
If you are looking to spruce up your aquarium, Ludwigia Ovalis, also called Oval Ludwigia, is the perfect plant for you. This plant produces oval leaves gracefully arranged in pairs along its stem, showcasing colors from green to golden brown to red. The coloration of Ludwigia Ovalis’ leaves is determined by environmental factors such as the light intensity and availability of nutrients.
How to Care for Ludwigia Ovalis
Oval Ludwigia is easy to care for and does not require any special considerations. It will grow well in gravel and under moderate light. If you are aiming for those stunning colors in the red spectrum, however, boosting light intensity and nutrient levels, particularly of iron, is highly recommended. Providing CO2 injection is not a must, but it will result in more robust growth.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Medium
- Temperature Range: 70-78° F
- Tank Placement: Midground
Ludwigia Ovalis should be planted in the midground and background areas of the aquarium. For the best visual impact, we recommend planting several stems in closely spaced groups. The plant can be easily propagated by simply sniping the cuttings from the main stem and planting them into the substrate.

Very nice plant. Pot provided 3 taller (4-6”) plants that went into an established tank, and 4 small (2-3”) plants that went into a new setup with my distilled-equivalent well water slowly hardening. All are doing well after 2 weeks. Variegated leaves, some aerial roots, and gradual zigzag growth. My rainbowfish tear the leaves off most small-leaved plants, but haven’t touched this, and like hanging out under and around them. Redoing my tanks for the first time in 6 years, and have gotten most new plants here. All are healthy and clean, spurring me to pull an old 20 gal from the shed and set it up again. All tanks are dirted (yard dirt) under sand or tiny gravel, no CO2 moderate lighting.
