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.

Platy fish ate plant
Plant arrived in so-so condition. As soon as I carefully placed plant in aquarium, many leaves fell off immediately. Unrelated- I noticed each day parts of the plant were disappearing, ended up discovering that my Platy fish were thoroughly enjoying this plant as a meal. All 3 stems that were separately planted were gone after 3 days. I have many other variety plants in tank, and they do not mess with them. I would not purchase this if you have Platy fish. Modern Aquarium should consider adding a caution to the product description.
Great product, super fast shipping!
I was nervous ordering this since red plants seem to never work out for me, but they arrived beautiful and still seem to be doing great

I only have 4 stars because I didn't feel like the amount of plants I got could be considered 2 bunches. It was more like 2 stems. Hoping it was just a mix up and looking forward to ordering again. Thanks
Love the colors, plants look great in my tank!
