Growth Rate: Average
Lighting: Medium to Very High
Latin Name: Ludwigia Glandulosa (L. Perennis, L. Peruensis)
Temperature: This plant is well suited for a cold water aquarium or a tropical aquarium that goes no higher than 25 degrees. 26 degrees is fine however the higher the temp the more difficult to grow this plant will become.
Colour: Maroon, burgundy, dark red, mauve with bright pink under leaves. Turns olive green in lower light. Colour varies depending on lighting and fertilisers.
Great for aquariums and ponds. For those of you with ponds: Pot this one and place it in a semi-shallow area near the edge and let it creep along the surface of the water and around the edges. If your pond is dirted then plant near the edge in the shallow areas.
-Pond Potting instructions: Line a plastic mesh pond pot with high-flow weed matting (available at Bunnings in a grey roll), fill with Daltons Aquatic Mix and then cap with a fine washed pebble to stop the aquatic mix from escaping the pot. Remove bottom 3cm or so of leaves from your stems and plant them about 1-3 inches apart. THEN lower the pot into your pond very slowly to avoid making a mess.
