dont know what species this is, but instead of growing straight up like most ludwigias, it branches out. it assumed this shape without any pruning. i collected it in a remote blackwater stream in north carolina. this was grown under t12 lights, so it doesnt need too much color to get to be more red. i have never seen it look straight green.

i dont know if you would call it a slow grower, but it grows a LOT slower than my red ludwigia hybrid. it grows maybe just a touch faster than my ludwigia glandulosa. my glandulosa grows pretty quick though, i just clipped the top three or four inches of of every branch of L glandulosa last week, and i need to trim it again. it grows 3-5 inches a week for me...
