Two year old thread is two years old
And growing conditions wouldn't really be affecting the pattern of leaf growth, it might affect the color and size of the leaf itself but not the placement of the leafs

Oh. Make sense. Without looking at leaf structure, it'll be very hard to tell the diff between rubin and repen.
That's should be the real question instead of rubin and red.....

I believe the Rubin is simply a well cared for Repens......
Therefore, the sp. Red and Rubins actually are the same plant.
Ludwigia Repens turns green under low light and pinkish under high........

|HybridHerp||I'm getting some Rubin in a few days, and I already have red, so I will try and compare once the rubin settles in as well.|

|vqfive||I have both Rubin and Red. The Red I purchased looks like a mini Rubin but is always red color from top to bottom|

palustris seems a bit mroe elongated in leaf form.
i woulnd't mind setting up a comparison grown under the same conditions if i could get my hands on some

|orchidman||I thought that Ludwigia sp. 'Red' was decided to be a red variety of L. paulustris. Making it Ludwigia paulustris 'Red'. I think it was Chad to was telling me this.|

here are two shots of it
the yellowish red repens is with low co2, low nitrate, low phosphate frm when i got first started
the bigger leafed bubbly ludiwiga is not red becuase i have it far away from the lights, but it has less co2 deficiency.. the curved leaf is still a good co2 deficiency sign

Thank you very much, it grows great but what you have said about the leaves being quarter size with co2 makes sense because I see this plant growing by canals (that is where I got it) and the leaves on those are quarter size while mine are nickel size if even that.
I just assumed since it grew so fast that water changes were enough.
I have a second corckscrew val tank recently set up and was thinking of DIY CO2 , will try it in both tanks.
The water here is the best for no algae at all and amazing plant growth but as you know doesn't come with CO2 so going to try it with soda bottle and air stone in tank.

while on the topic, I feel like sp. atlantis should also be discussed with these two
sure, price wise there is a big difference now, but appearance wise and size wise and all I think these three sp. are very similar.
