    Beautiful plant

    Posted by No other name provided Michelle on Apr 17th 2018

    Plant comes green with long leaves and thick stems but turns a beautiful red color with liquid iron fertz supplement submerged. Sensitive to PH swings, due to a mistake on my part but pretty hardy plant.

    great color and easy to grow

    Posted by planted tank on Nov 1st 2013

    This arrived in very good condition, have sent many roots down and grown well. It is a great color variation and very easy to grow in any tank. I have order many plants in great condition from this site and never saw any snails or anything bad. I highly recommend them

    Easy care

    I cut stems generously and plants started growing quickly within a couple weeks. Plants are growing well without CO2 and in low to moderate light.

    Broad Leaf Ludwigia

    Posted by Elise on Nov 11th 2010

    This is a great plant! It's fairly tall to start with and has very nice colors. I ordered 3 and was able to fill a good area with clums of 3 together. Most of the bunch plants I ordered were packed so when I pulled them out, they were arched and fall forward a bit. I am hoping once they are settled and under the light they straighten up. 11/11 - Look great still, thinking about ordering more.

    Nice red tinting

    Posted by Brian on Dec 11th 2009

    This is a nice plant for adding green and some red to the aquascape. The upper leaves are turning red and the tips of other leaves are reddish, low leaves are green. Growing fast, trimmed within 2 weeks.

    Repens-Nice Pink/Red Coloration!

    Posted by Dawn on Aug 14th 2009

    I've purchased this in the past and have this planted in 2 tanks. Each time I've ordered this stem bunching I've received groups of 5-5+ stems which are usually about 5" in height. I keep this in both a 10g and 90g with eco-complete substrate. The 10g it easily reaches the top of the tank without need for plant dosing of any kind, the 90g is dosed with Seachems Plant line and it does quite nicely under the 2.4wpg of t5 lighting. I love the pinkish/red hues that the upper leaves get and have found this to be a easy grower.

    gorgeous, hardy plant!

    this is a great plant for the novice aquarium keeper! it's so hardy, so lush and colorful, the pics just don't do it justice! i put it in laterite and boy is it ever flourishing and gorgeous! i would definitely reccomend this plant to anyone looking to start a new hobby of aquarium planting, it's been so much fun and so rewarding to my fish- ps, this plant seems to be a not very yummy plant for lots of fish such as large comets and koi, unlike madagascar lace, which they decimated! great plant!
