"Meta" is a still new, splendidly coloured form of Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata with only moderate requirements. It was brought from the Departamento del Meta in central Colombia a few years ago. At the moment it is still a rarity. In its underwater form, this plant is very similar to Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata "Pantanal", with whorled, narrow leaves that turn bright red to orange in bright light. "Meta", however, is easier to grow, comparable to L. inclinata var. verticillata 'Cuba'.
This magnificent fine-leaved Ludwigia grows optimally with rather strong lighting, CO2 addition, soft to medium-hard water and complete macro- and micronutrient supply. Like other stem plants, it can be propagated by cuttings. In emersed culture it forms broader, alternate leaves and quite striking yellow flowers.

This rare Ludwigia from Colombia attracts attention as a bush in the middle to background of aquariums and contrasts especially with light green plants. Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata "Meta" will certainly find widespread use as an aquarium plant, as it combines the bright red tones of the Pantanal Ludwigia with lower cultivation requirements.
