Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata is cultivated in swamps, where it
has green oval leaves, but after a transitional period under water in the
aquarium it develops long, narrow leaves, growing closely together to give a
compact appearance. These new leaves are marbled with copper and reddish brown.
Slow to gain height, the plant is found on the Isla de la Juventud off Cuba.
