Ludwigia repens

Ludwigia repens my aquarium

Ludwigia nantis

Dark-green stem plant with pretty thick leaves. If they get enough light the top side of the leaves will get a bit red.

My experiences
I myself was a bit disappointed about this well known aquarium plant. This because the grew and color of the plant could only stand in the shadow of the next described Ludwigia, which I had before this one in my aquarium.

Place and lighting in my aquarium
This plant stood in the mid-back of my aquarium. The lighting I used at the time was a 0.42 Watt/liter lumilux TL lighting (2*18 Watt).
