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:
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.
Im waiting to see if it takes
But I was impressed with the size - the fast shipping & great packaging
I recently received and planted my order of Ludwigia glandulosa, which is beautiful! From prompt shipping to very healthy plants on arrival, I’ll be sure to make future orders from Dustin.
Another great plant from Dustin. Was packaged very well and came in healthy with lots of roots and a very generous portion. It’s been almost a week and very few leaves lost and new growth and new roots. Love the colors!
Another surprise with these plants. These stems were the tallest stem plants I’ve gotten from Dustin so far and they had so many roots coming off of them so hopefully they’ll adjust to my tank better since they already have a lot of roots to begin with. They were all a deep red as well but I figure it will look more like a mixture of red and green as time goes on since I don’t run CO2
