Beautiful brown and red leaf colors add distinction to your aquarium. Ludwigia inclinata is not much different than other Ludwigia species of plants when it comes to care and aquarium placement. This variety makes an ideal mid-ground plant in mid-sized aquariums or background addition to smaller systems. When properly cared for, Ludwigia inclinata can grow to 16" high. Like other members of its genus, however, Ludwigia inclinata has high lighting and diligent fertilization requirements for optimal growth.
To ensure best growth, fertilize regularly with micronutrients, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. Keep under high light intensity of 3 to 5 watts per gallon of full spectrum (5000-7000°K) light. This plant also prefers neutral pH. However, it is fairly adaptable to a wide range of temperatures and water hardness parameters, due to the fact that native species of Ludwigia inclinata thrive both as surface plants in boggy marshes and as submersed flora in fast-moving rivers.
