Plant Sizes

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.

our delivery promise to you

If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.



If you order before 4pm we dispatch the same working day (Mon-Fri). Shipping prices start at £4.99 depending on the speed of delivery required.

Originating from Central America the Ludwigia palustris comes in both the 'red' and the 'green' varieties. The name relates directly to the colour of the leaves once the plant is submersed. These plants are easy to grow and make suitable background plants. Trim them heavily and replant for the best effect.

These particular plants are very tolerant to different water temperatures, they can even be planted around ponds in the summer.

Ludwigia palustris green - 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.

Beautiful plant when it arrived, but my Moonlight Gouramis have reduced them to stalks, so not for me at the moment.

One happy plant!

This plant is thriving. I've always liked the Ludwigia species. It looks lovely, and is now poking out of the water in my smaller tank (44 Litre). Maybe time to put it in the bigger one with the fishes - or to trim it!
