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.

    Incredible quality and quantity. Well started and very bright red leaves. I haven't planted them yet as they are still in quaratine (All of my plants and fish go through this) but they look to be a great addition to the tank. I should have ordered more and will to be sure I can fill in the space on this 125 gallon aquarim.

    Red fish loving plant

    Posted by Heather DeHart on 10 Nov 2021

    This plant was one of my favorites out of package I received. It was healthy and looked amazing in my tank. The fish in my tank have shredded it to pieces all of the larger leaves have been picked off and are floating at the top of the tank. I'm glad my fish are enjoying the snack but I'm afraid the plant is going to die if they keep munching at this rate. Otherwise the plant was gorgeous and there is some new growth on the plant stems so hopefully it will bounce back

    Beautiful Plants

    Posted by Shirley Kunz on 28 Oct 2021

    These plants are very vibrant. I had to clip a few leaves off after unwrapping them, but they really pop with their color in the tank.

    Beautiful, hearty plant that adds a great pop of color to a predominantly green planted tank. Plants arrived safely in still-damp wrappings; looked just as pictured!
