This was the first day I came home and didnt find any floating,yay!It is actually looking pretty good,Im surprised.The uppermost sections of it are a nice pinkish hue.Now that there is a pic,have any of you pros out there seen this plant or know anything from first hand experiance?

Beautiful plant... I have it in one of my tanks...plant some tabs by it's roots and you'll need high light to keep the red tips...but it is also pretty in green..

Hope it works out for you...it really is worth the effort this plant

Im on a good road then,it didnt have those reddish hues when I got it,a little but not like this.The stems sure are brittle though.I hope my raph and sailfin leave it alone:c11: Thanks Jess.:ezpi_wink1:

I like it, too. It should do OK for you. I've seen your Ludwigia.

I just got another bunch today.This time it had 7 stems instead of the 4 that I got the first time.The first batch is doing well and is finally staying planted,this new bunch I got had some roots starting so maybe it will go better.Ive got quite a patch of it now.
