Its native to Japan and some other parts of Asia. It likes a good amount of light and C02. Seems to do better in soft water, but i don't think its crutial. Typically it has soft pastel coloring, salmon pink. The stems are a bit thinner and gthe plant over all is more delicate in nature than Ludwigia species from north america, repens, arcuata, palustris and so forth.
