Ludwigia Mulerttii (Marsh Loosetife)

Ludwigia Mulerttii

Ludwigia is not a true aquatic, but is truly a bog plant. The leaves are comparable in shape to privet leaves, and lots of light is essential for growth. Should you plant it in a shady component of the aquarium, the leaves will droop.

It's effortlessly propagated by snicking off a piece of plant just where the leaves join the stem, and you are able to see the young tendrils shooting. You are able to then plant the cutting within the regular way.

Ludwigia palustris is the only British species.
