Common Name: Diamond Ludwigia

Diamond Ludwigia is a less common ludwigia variation with very unique coloration. In ideal conditions these plants’ leaves are green on top and red underneath, adding a stunning dimension to the mid-ground of almost any aquascape. Their vivid color creates a superb focal point. Diamond ludwigia plants have oval, pointed leaves that grow in opposite pairs along the stem. The leaves can be green, gold, orange, or red, depending on tank conditions. These plants are very attractive when planted in bunches of 10-12 stems.

In order to achieve the desirable bright colors in your Diamond ludwigia, you must provide high lighting and nutrient levels. Supplemental iron will bring out more brilliant red tones in the plant. CO2 injection is recommended to see optimal growth and color. The plant can be grown submersed or emersed, and emersed plants will produce delicate yellow flowers.

Propagation can be achieved by taking cuttings from the main stem of the plant that are replanted into the substrate.

Notes:

  • Ludwigia can be very fragile. Be sure to handle this aquarium plant with care.
  • Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
  • Remove the cotton surrounding the roots and plant into a quality substrate. 
  • CO2 injection and quality aquarium soil will yield better growth.
  • Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
