Red Ludwigia Repens is an aquatic plant species with a long stem, and dense round leaves. The undersides of the leaves have a pink-red hue. This plant can grow either fully submerged, or partially submerged.
This plant is best suited for the background of your aquarium, as it can grow 20 inches tall. This plant generally gets to be around 3 inches wide. It does best in temperatures from the mid-to-high-70's. It's a fast grower, and needs moderate light (though it grows fastest in high light).
The red colour of the plant is enhanced with more intense lighting. If kept in a dimly lit tank, the plant starts presenting mostly green. This plant does best in slightly acidic water, but grows well in neutral water too. These plants have strong roots, and are able to grow in any substrate.
