Ludwigia Ovalis is a fast-growing and hardy plant. Ludwigia Ovalis changes colors based on lighting, co2, and fertilization. Ludwigia Ovalis can survive in almost any type of freshwater aquarium, so it is great for beginners. It can thrive with only moderate lighting, but it has the potential for brighter red coloration with higher lighting and proper supplementation, particularly iron.


NOTE: The plant you will receive will look slightly different than the first picture (its submerged form) as shown in the subsequent pictures (its current emersed/transitioning form). With proper lighting and fertilizers, it should be able to transition to its submerged form with minimal melt.
