Aquatic Tissue Culture Plants
Tissue culture plants are propagated in sterile packages where they grow in non-toxic, germ- and pest-free environments. Complete Aquatic Systems owns and operates our own tissue culture lab thus giving us total control over the varieties and quantities produced. Another benefit to having our own lab is that we don't have any middlemen to deal with.
Ludwigia repens, also known as red ludwigia and water primrose, are wonderful additions to freshwater tanks. Native to the waters of tropical areas in North and Central America, they can be grown partially or fully submersed. The leaves have a unique spade shape that ranges from a dark green to brownish-red. With adequate lighting, the leaves become a vibrant red.

About Ludwigia Repens
Ludwigia repens plants are ideal midground plants in standard aquariums, and they make excellent background plants in smaller tanks. Ideally, they should receive a high-intensity light (3 to 5 watts per gallon) of full spectrum (5000-7000K) light. They can flourish in a wide range of temperatures. Soft water and neutral pH is preferred.
During the warm season, Ludwigia repens reproduce naturally, when the plant matures and develops bright yellow flowers that drop seeds in the substrate. To propagate manually, cut the top of the plant or its branches, and replant the stem in the substrate.
