The red and green contrast of the leaves of Dark Red Ludwigia is quite striking, and individual leaves often have both colors. Ludwigia is very fast-growing and low-maintenance, making it an ideal choice for beginners looking to start a planted tank. Ludwigia can thrive even in poorly lit aquariums, and in the right conditions it is a very aggressive grower and provides excellent waste removal from the water column. It is also great for providing cover and hiding places for fish and dwarf shrimp, especially in breeding tanks.
