Narrow Ludwigia is a marsh plant of indeterminate origin as it has become naturalised in most parts of the world for centuries, though is thought to come from North America. Its red stem and bright green and red leaves make for an attractive mid to background plant and requires very little maintenance.
Relatively undemanding and easy to keep. Benefits from extra nutrients and lighting for ideal colour.
Background placement in the aquarium due to it's fast growth.
Fast growth rate. Narrow Ludwigia will utilise nutrients in the water column in the form of liquid fertilisation, and enjoys a nutrient rich substrate for optimal colour and growth. It produces aerial roots readily, which can be left alone or trimmed.
In lower lighting leaves remain a duller green/red colour and the lower leaves may drop off. Narrow Ludwigia benefits from moderate to high lighting for optimal colour and growth.
