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.
