Ludwigia repens 'Rubin'


This color variation has been available for almost 10 years, and is one of the most attractive red-leaved aquarium plants. Generating such rich, red tones requires strong light and a good supply of CO2. Under these conditions the leaf pairs are very closely arranged on the stems and the plants appear very compact. A group of about 10 stems mixed with light green varieties is like a fireworks display under water!
