Ludwigia Glandulosa, commonly known as Cylindricfruit Primrose-Willow, is a stunning aquatic plant that adds vibrant colors to any aquascape. Its slender stems feature delicate, narrow leaves that range from green to deep red. This plant is a favorite among aquascapers due to its ability to create beautiful contrasts and focal points.
To cultivate Ludwigia Glandulosa successfully, provide it with moderate to high lighting levels. This plant benefits from the addition of CO2 and nutrient-rich substrate. Without sufficient light, the foliage may lose its intense red coloration. Regular pruning is recommended to maintain a compact and bushy growth form. Trim the stems by cutting just above a node to encourage lateral branching.
