About Ludwigia Peruensis
Because of its bold, attention-grabbing red hue, Diamond Ludwigia peruensis is best used as the focal point of a tank. However, it can also be used successfully alongside other plants to add robust color accents.
If the lighting system isn’t powerful enough, the plants will become flimsy and lose color. If this happens and increasing the brightness isn’t an option, allow just enough space between the plants to keep their leaves from shading each other.
To propagate Diamond Ludwigia peruensis, cut one of the lateral shoots with sharp scissors. Remove the two pairs of leaves at the bottom, and place the stem into the substrate gently to prevent crushing. The root system should flourish within a few weeks. If you allow the plant to grow above the surface, it produces yellow flowers.
