Sale price$9.99


Ludwigia Glandulosa, commonly known as Red Ludwigia, is a visually striking and popular aquatic plant in the aquarium hobby. Originating from North and Central America, particularly areas with slow-moving or stagnant water, this plant belongs to the Onagraceae family. Its vibrant coloration and relatively undemanding care requirements make it a favorite among both beginners and experienced aquarium enthusiasts.

The defining feature of Ludwigia Glandulosa is its intense red to orange coloration, which can vary based on factors such as lighting, nutrient levels, and water conditions. The lance-shaped leaves are arranged opposite each other along the stem, creating a lush and bushy appearance when the plant is well-maintained.

In aquariums, Red Ludwigia is often used to add a burst of color, and it can be placed in the background or midground for aquascaping purposes. Its growth pattern is relatively fast, and regular pruning is necessary to prevent it from overshadowing other plants in the aquarium. Trimming can also encourage bushier growth and enhance the overall aesthetic appeal.

To ensure optimal growth and coloration, Ludwigia Glandulosa benefits from moderate to high lighting conditions. Additionally, providing a nutrient-rich substrate and supplementing with a comprehensive liquid fertilizer can contribute to the plant's health and vibrancy. The addition of carbon dioxide (CO2) can further enhance growth and color intensity.

Red Ludwigia is known to thrive in a range of water parameters, including pH levels between 6.0 and 7.5 and water temperatures between 20 to 28 degrees Celsius (68 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit). It can adapt to various aquarium setups, making it suitable for both freshwater planted tanks and paludariums.

Apart from its decorative appeal, Ludwigia Glandulosa provides shelter and hiding places for small fish and invertebrates, contributing to a more natural and enriching environment. With its captivating color and relatively straightforward care requirements, Ludwigia Glandulosa is an excellent choice for aquarium hobbyists looking to add a touch of vibrancy to their aquatic landscapes.
