Here are some photos of a fairly new plant that was grown and introduced out of asia. What is known is that it is a mutation of Ludwigia inclinata sp "cuba". Its difficulty of growth is some where between L. sp. "Cuba" and L. sp. "Pantanal".Fairly a little more difficult than L. sp. "Cuba" but not as hard as L. sp "Pantanal". Friends from Germany are having some issues with leaves loosing its curls. Luckily for me, the plant is keeping its curly leaf form. Hope you enjoy these photos.

As you can see, it is a very interesting plant. These photos are plants that has not yet reach the top of the tank. As it moves closer to the light, their crowns begin to turn redish just like L. inclinata "cuba".

Here are some photos of the crown about 2 inches from the top of the tank.

That's a cool plant for sure. So when are you gonna have some for sale? ;)
Bummer others are reporting it losing it's curliness, doesn't sound like a stable mutation.
its probably just like a lot of other plants that look different in other peoples tanks. i bet that if they gave it back to the person they got it from it would curl back up
Very cool, how much is it per/stem?
