With proper fertilization, co2 and strong lighting it is one of the darkest red plants available for high and or low tech aquariums. Ludwigia Sp. Rubin is a large leafed plant best used in the background, stems can get very thick and grows aggressively. Great tank mates include other ludwigia, Pogostemon, and staurogyne species.

What you get
Most of our plants are all aquarium plants, that is when you receive your plants they will have already gone through the transformation process. The transformation the plant has to go through is difficult if all the plants requirements are not met. We do that for you, when you receive your plant it is ready for submersed growing. Submersed growth will look alot different from the emersed growth, of a terrestrial grown plant. Know what your buying, and buy quality.We now have over 350 species growing underwater in our aquariums. Our plants are ready to grow, already transformed aquarium plants. You don’t have to go through the transforming process from terrestrial plants to aquarium plants, we’ve done that for you. Just like fish, live plants do best when they are kept in an aquarium that best suits their needs. Selecting live plants that share common water conditions will minimize problems and make it easier for you to maintain and keep your aquarium in tip top shape. We want your plant to thrive and become a favorite part of your tank. Be sure to choose plants that are suitable for your aquarium so you will get the most out of your new addition.
