Ludwigia repens


Ludwigia repens is a highly variable stem plant with different leaf shapes and colours. It is easy tocultivate and care for, but  does prefer temperatures below 26°C. It is also very tolerant in terms of water quality, making it a good beginner plant for any new setup. Since it grows quite quickly, you need to cut back the stems regularly. This produces many side shoots that can be used for propagation.
