Ludwigia repens changing color?

1168 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Schreckeng
Hey guys, I bought some ludwigia repens two days ago from petco, was completely green (other than some brown leaves I pruned), no red to be seen.

Today there are 4 leaves that are half red.

Does that mean it will continue to change color? Or is it temporary?

You should start to notice small leaflets growing underneath each of the plant's current leaves. These are the new submerged-adjusted leaves which are coming in to replace the emergent growth leaves. Even with lots of CO2, this might take awhile, as the plant is not photosynthesizing optimally with its current setup.
