Of course, there's Ludwigia and there's Ludwigia. Some are tropical, but
many are temperate plants. It is entirely possible that if you have a
temperate sp., it would prefer cooler water. As far as the color is
concerned, I am keeping only one species at the moment, (a native) and it
wasn't very red to start with. It's about the same color it was when it
was first collected.
I seem to remember some very red Ludwigia grown in George Booth's tanks. I
don't think he keeps his tanks particularly cool, but maybe he can give us
