The image of the plant you'll be receiving is just an example of what you can expect. Each plant is unique and may vary in size and shape, so it won't be an exact match to the photo.

Ludwigia glandulosa, also known as Ludwigia perennis, is a beautiful and unique plant that is native to the United States. It's an average class plant in terms of difficulty, making it a great option for those looking to add a little more colour and variety to their aquarium. This plant requires higher lighting in order to survive. If the plant is not getting enough light, the leaves may fall off (partiucularly at the bottom), so be sure to provide adequate lighting.

The deep coloration of this plant makes it a perfect centerpiece for any aquarium. It is a vibrant red-orange color that will catch the eye of anyone who sees it. Planting multiple Ludwigia glandulosa around rocks or other decorations will really create a stunning visual effect.

In addition to high lighting, this plant also requires CO2 and lots of macronutrients in order to flourish. By providing these essential elements, you will be rewarded with a healthy and vibrant plant. This plant is also a great option for those who are looking to breed fish, as it provides a natural habitat for them to lay their eggs.

Overall, Ludwigia glandulosa is a beautiful and unique aquarium mplant that is sure to make a statement in any aquarium or garden. With its vibrant coloration and easy care requirements, it is a great option for both experienced and novice aquascapers alike. So why not add a little colour to your tank and give this plant a try? You won't be disappointed!

Here's a few tips about this plant that are worth mentioning.

1. Lots of colour

Red plants are popular in the hobby because they break up the sea of green that we see so much of. Use red plants in groups to create focal points and consider positioning them around wood or rock for a stylish look.

2. Red plants need more light

Red plants get their colour from light intensity. The reason they arrive with lovely colours is because they're grown in greenhouses that have access to lots of natural light. This means they grow fast, and colourful. If you don't have lots of light (and these plants really like pink light), colour can be less along with speed of growth.

3. Don't forget to trim

Most red plants are stems and this means they generally grow quite fast. It's important to trim stem plants regularly and don't be concerned when trimming 50% each time. This allows the plant to retain their colours and stay bushy. If you let them grow too big, they'll drop their lower leaves and concentrate on their top section (resembling a forest canopy) which you don't want.

Arrived in good condition as per all plants purchased from Aquaessentials. Blended in so well I have trouble spotting it unless I look hard, growing well and looks like it's been in the tank forever.

Bought this plant on a £1.99 deal. Aqua essentials were robbed. I received 4 main stems which have all grown nicely. I also had 4 plantlets which have also started growing. So 8 plants for £1.99 can’t argue with that. The plants are growing well, the main stems are just starting to turn reddish brown so a nice addition to a ‘green’ tank.
