Description: This plant is found in a variety of forms that differ in leaf shape and color. The most commonly available is a wide, round-leaved form, that is light olive green-brown on the leaf surface and a reddish color on the underside. Ludwigia repens prosper in both soft and hard water, require a medium ligh intensity for optimum maintenance. The plant is highly adaptable and fast growing. As it reaches the surface, the leaves become more compact and the stems grows horizontally across the water, creating an attractive overhead view. A number of rootlike shoots are produced from the leaf nodes. Regular pruning will keep the plant tidy and healthy. Propagation occurs through lateral shoots which are produced in abundance. Flowers, which are often formed in emersed cultivation, are required for any definite identification.
