Ludwigia senegalensis


Ludwigia senegalensis is a real African beauty; its submerse leaves have an interesting leaf drawing with intense brick-red coloration. However, some requirements must be met: very good lighting, a high supply of CO2, macro and micronutrients, as well as soft water. Its stems should not be planted too close so that the lower part of the stem still receives enough light. If these conditions are met, Ludwigia senegalensis is a highlight for every plant enthusiast.
