Ludwigia Arcuata, also known as Needle-Leaf Ludwigia, is a mid-ground/background plant native to North, Central, and South America. This unique plant is quite rewarding when grown properly and can tolerate different water parameters. When grown submersed this plant develops medium, needle-like like leaves that are bright red. Its coloration is absolutely stunning - this plant makes a great contrast between its bottom half (green) and top half (bright red). Once kept under water for a longer period of time, this plant will become fully red. Should be trimmed regularly. This plant can be easily propagated by simply cutting of the stem and replanting it on the substrate.
Great for providing shelter to small fish.
