Re: Ludwigia repens

Ludwigia is a somewhat demanding plant.  If you want it to thrive and 
flourish, then it really does much better with 3 watts per gallon, 
supplemental CO2, and good nutrients.  I'm not saying it won't grow without 
all these things; it's just that if you want to see the gorgeous red colors 
and large show-off leaves, you'll have to give the plant more of everything.  
I can tell you from experience that CO2 makes a HUGE difference with Ludwigia.
