Ludwigia Glandulosa (The Ultimate Mix of Ease and Color)
We stock 10 different types of Ludwigia. This one is one of my favorite for this reason:
AS of 6.9.20 they are slightly smaller than shown. SAME COLORATION and beefiness!
Ludwigia Glandulos gives you the MOST Red color for the least amount of work. (In contrast, a Ludwigia white or Ludwigia Inclinata would like much more light and even CO2 to really thrive) NOT Ludwigia Glandulosa
It comes in to us from multiple supplier from around the world, We have found the version that we like the most that grows rampantly while throwing off Insane color.
We have kept it in basins with hardly any thing but minimal day light, and we have kept it under the Halides we use over the basins. IT GROWS IN BOTH condition. (obviously under the Halides its BONKERS)
Like other Ludwigias, this is a BACKGROUND PLANT.
I would also secondarily use this plant as an IRON gauge as it seems to give less color when Iron is needed. (Don't over think that, use Iron in small amounts)
I have always thought Ludwigia looks great with a Val as a contrasting background plant of any kind.
On a Scale of 1 to 10. 1 being you can grow it in your Toilet- 10 being, "It's gonna dies soon"
Ludwigia Glandulosa is a 2. *Only a 2 because you might lose some lower leaves close to the stem in transition.
Arrived quickly and was packaged well. Plant was in great condition.
maaan i have kept some absolutely beautiful broad red ludwigia in my day - im talkin bushy specimens over a foot in length! with simple inert sand & root tabs... therefore i was quite excited to order some of this species.
i ordered 4 bunches of it and they all melted but maybe 2 stems.
im not asking for any retribution or anything, just wanted to report on my failure..
though, i have no clue why the majority died on me.
quite sad about it indeed ;(
picture is an old one showing a healthy bunch of the ludwegia broad reds and some sort of alternanthera
This plant arrived a bit melted, but is recovering in the tank very well and within two days already started showing new growth! A very beautiful plant! The stems aren't as red as the ones pictured, but I think it'll "beef up" with some more time. I'm excited to watch it grow!
plants look great! they arrived in perfect condition I have purchased plants in the past always a deal
looks really nice and healthy , bigger than i thought should look great in the placement of my tank
