Variety of Ludwigia repens with striking dark red leaves and stalk. It
makes a fine colour contrast to the green shades in the aquarium. Plant in large
groups to enhance the decorative effect, and prune regularly to encourage bushy
growth. The plant makes few demands, but if light is insufficient the lower
leaves tend to fall off. In strong light the colour becomes more intense. Its
scientific name is at present uncertain. See also Ludwigia repens.
