Ludwiga ovalis is a relatively new species in the aquatic plant hobby. Oval ludwigia is a versatile plant, but to get the desirable bright colors, you must provide high lighting and nutrient levels.

Planting Instructions

Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that normally don't come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry although at times my stem plants may come with roots because I have been growing them out. All stem plants come with a plant weight that holds the plant in place and is safe for your tank. 

To plant just let the weight lay on your substrate and the stems will grow roots throughout your substrate. You can also plant the tips, about 1/4" in your substrate if you prefer.

Nice colors
This plant looked a bit pale after shipping, so I'm not getting the full affect of the colors, but even still its got a very nice color, and I'm sure it will get better after growing into my tank. I love the shape of the leaves on the plants and it looks great with the rest of the tank. It gives it a very autumn-y color.
