Plant ID..?


Anyone have any ideas as to what this is?



I'm fairly sure that the LFS had it mismarked.

What was it labeled as? It doesn't look familiar to me. Also, that's a thick stem for an aquatic plant..

Truthfully, I don't remember what it was labeled, but I've seen it carry two different names at the LFS over the course of a week...

But l. glandulousa has a much more even coloration and is considerably redder than what I've got in the tank... the new growth is light green/yellow compared to the pictures of l. glandulousa. Leaves are also broader however the stem thickness seems consistent.

Nonetheless, it does seem like a ludwigia sp.

Its need very high light to get that deep red color.
And if you got it at your LFS it was most likely grown emersed.

You've already gotten the correct answer from four people. It's emersed grown glandulosa. Leaf shape can vary a bit, but the characters on which everyone's ID has been based are readily evident.
