Description

Ludwigia glandulosa is one of the most colourful aquarium plants but is relatively demanding. Favorable conditions provided - strong lighting, good CO2 supply, nutrient-rich substrate, temperatures not permanently above 25 °C - it develops magnificent wine-red leaves. This Ludwigia species is native iin wetlands of southeastern North America. It is often erroneously labeled as "Ludwigia perennis" or "Ludwigia peruensis" in trade.

It is best placed as a freestanding group of stems with different lengths in the midground. In contrast to other Ludwigias, it develops upright, little branched, strong submerged stems that are densely set with narrow, lanceolate leaves. With its striking coloration, Ludwigia glandulosa is especially suited as an accent plant.

Two subspecies of the cylindric-fruited primrose willow, Ludwigia glandulosa (ssp. glandulosa and ssp. brachycarpa) are found in most of the southeastern states of the USA. To the north its area of distribution extends to Illinois and Indiana. It prefers wetlands, but also wet road ditches. Despite its large distribution it is considered endangered to critically endangered in Indiana and Louisiana.
In the trade, it is often found under the erroneous name of "Ludwigia perennis", which is not a synonym for L. glandulosa but the name of another species found in Asia, Africa and Australia. It is also often sold under the trade name of "Ludwigia peruensis", obviously deriving from "perennis".

L. glandulosa has lanceolate alternate leaves (1 leaf per node). (read more)

Die Pflanze kam in sehr gutem Zustand. Das Bündel voll.

Alles in Allem war die Pflanze etwas in die Höhe geschossen, was vermutlich der Grund für das Sonderangebot war.
