    Great plant

    These arrived in great condition. These rooted in substrate within one week in my tank. Grew 2-3 inches, and I have trimmed them back 3-4 inches. Branching out nice. Beautiful dark red color!! Best color, next to Nesea Red. Peruensis is my favorite.

    L. Peruensis-Nice Color and Height

    Posted by Dawn on Aug 15th 2009

    I've purchase several of these in the past..they arrive well with minimal leaf loss and color up nicely. I've alway received a minimum of 5 stems with a few having roots already starting measuring just under 7" in height. These weren't as fast growing as I had expected, but look very nice planted in groups. I'd give it 4 stars if the leaves would all stay the same color...the tops are gorgeous, but the lower leaves don't receive as much coloration and are a deep greenish to semi burgandy color.

    So far so good, I have had several of these plants for about two weeks and while they do not have much new growth, unlike other ludwigia plants I have kept, this hasn't just fallen apart. I am hoping that the growth energy is being put into root structure. More to come...
