    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. If we provide a size guide, keep in mind that it's just an estimate and that plants can vary in size depending on the time of year.

    With a name like Ludwigia Mini Super Red, it's an eye catcher already! This rather neat looking stem plant grows up to 30cm in height and offers a welcomed colour addition into any aquarium. The red stems are striking as are the leaves which have red veins throughout.

    Originating from North America, this fast growing needs heavy trimming to keep it bushy. One of our favourites!

    Ludwigia Mini Super Red - Aqua Essentials

    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.

    First time disappointed

    I have always been impressed with both the service and quality of plants and products from this company. Sadly this time around the plant was almost totally rotted and in a very poor way when it arrived. There was very little left to plant, and what was left died back over the next 48hrs. This may have been due to a possibility longer delivery time due to the general delays we are experiencing at the moment.

    I am sorry to read this however if plants are delayed in the post they can perish which is why we always recommend Express Delivery.
