ABC PLANTS - Ludwigia peruensis 'Red Star'

Availability: Out of stock

This cultivar of Ludwigia peruensis is possibly the single reddest plant you can get for your aquarium; it's leaves and stems turn an almost scarlet color in good conditions. Unlike the common variety where only the leaf bottoms turn red, this cultivar will produce bright red pigmentation on both the upper and lower sides of the leaf blade as well as the stem itself. It is also considerably easier to grow than some varieties of Ludwigia peruensis.


Our 'Red Star' cultivar tends to remain shorter and with denser internodes and is well suited to foreground and midground placement in most aquariums and makes for a brilliant display in even nano tanks!
