ABC PLANTS - Ludwigia arcuata

Availability: In stock (1)

A beautiful, fairly undemanding plant that can be grown in a wide range of water conditions, Ludwigia arcuata is a fairly low growing bushy plant with long thin leaves that take on beautiful shades of red with high lighting. It is an eye-catching midground or background plant in even small aquariums. L. arcuata does not require CO2 though it benefits from good lighting. CO2 supplementation can bring out more intense coloration and encourage denser and bushier growth.
