Ovalis - Ludwigia ovalis
Easy to care for - Medium lighting
Oval Ludwigia (Ludwigia ovalis) is an extremely attractive, yet relatively hardy and low-maintenance stem plant that is much less demanding than many of its relatives. This hardy, fast-growing plant can flourish and highlight the middle or background of the aquascape with striking red, pink, or orange coloration. It can thrive with only moderate lighting, but it has the potential for brighter red coloration with higher lighting and proper supplementation, particularly iron.
This variety of Oval Ludwigia requires moderate. Its trimmings can be replanted. It does not require CO2 supplementation, but CO2 supplementation will contribute to more optimal growth and health.
Like most plants, Oval Ludwigia will benefit from supplementation such as Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, Flourish Nitrogen, Flourish Iron, and other plant supplements.
