Hey everyone, I've been having this thought in my head for a while. Is the red Ludwigia that is sold at petsmart the same as Ludwigia sp red that is sold here on the forum sometimes?
Which is different from Ludwigia sp. red.
Ludwigia sp. red stays a bright red and L. repens will get red on the underside of the leaf and is green on top. You can see L. sp. red on the left side of my tank.In what way?
I have not tried it in a low tech setup but others have said it stays red even in a low tech. It has to be the most undemanding red plant I have ever had. Grows like crazy once established.How difficult is Ludwigia sp red? Iwas hoping they were the same but I guess not lol iwant a red plant to add some color into my tank
Nice plant and color! Deal interesting how plants names can be lolHmm, I'm wondering about this myself.
Previously I've kept Ludwigia sp. 'Red' that stayed a consistent deep blood red in any lighting. And regular Ludwigia too, which of course turns red given enough light, but more strongly on the bottom of leaves.
But recently I picked up a plant at Petco, it was unlabeled but looks like some kind of Ludwigia. However, it's not the color of either other type I've kept. It's deep red, on both the top and bottom of leaves, but has a definite magenta tint that I have not seen in sp. 'Red'. Interestingly, new growth also has a bit of yellow:
Interested to see what folks think this is.
