Ludwiga Peruensis | Set of Two

Ludwigia Peruensis, commonly known as Ludwiga Glandulosa, originates from North America.  It is a strikingly beautiful plant.  This variant produces small spade-shaped leaves in colors and shades ranging from brown to dark/intense red.  Grown under ideal conditions, with good lighting and fertilization, this plant will exhibit intense red coloration and will stand out in your tank. It looks best when planted in groups.      

Caring for Our Ludwiga Peruensis

If provided with proper care, Ludwiga Peruensis will grow quickly, producing intensely olive-green/pink or red leaves. The plant likes good lighting and the more intense the light the more robust growth and intense coloration the plant will exhibit. While not necessary, Ludwiga Peruensis will also appreciate some fertilization.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Medium-High
  • Temperature Range: 72-82° F
  • Tank Placement: Midground-Background

Ludwiga Peruensis should be planted in small groups in the middle or back of the aquarium. Stems should be planted individually. Regular trimming will keep the plant compact and looking its best. Propagation is from cuttings and side shoots.

    So Pleased

    Posted by Peg Foster on 21 Sep 2021

    I have ordered this plant from other companies and what arrived looked sickly at best. None of previously ordered plants made it. When I tried one last, using Modern Aquarium, the plants arrived in beautiful condition, very healthy and nice sized bunches. They have been in my tanks for over a week. There have been no problems and are doing great with new leaves starting to sprout. They provide a great contrast with my light green plants.

    These were beautiful on arrival. I followed all instructions given and they have turned mostly green. I am hoping they are just getting used to the new environment and that their beautiful red color will come back.

    Plant arrived very healthy. Left all the plants we ordered in aquarium for 36 hours before setting them in the aquarium. All the plants looked very healthy and their was no wilting or browning after a week in the aquarium. We love this plant. It is a great addition to our aquarium.
