Description

This Ludwigia is labeled with vaying names: "Mesakana", "Mesacana", "Messancana" etc. It is a colourful, round-leaved selection of Ludwigia repens.

Ludwigia repens 'Mesakana' is not a particularly difficult plant, but has somewhat higher demands than "standard" L. repens. A good macro- and micronutrient supply is important, also rather soft water is beneficial. Good lighting provides vibrand red and orange tones.

In the midground to background of not too small aquaria, a bush of Ludwigia repens 'Mesakana' provides a colourful eyecatcher. It contrasts well with fine-textured green plants.

Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.

This plant is according to Kasselmann (2010)generalreferences#1 a form of the very variable species Ludwigia repens, however, it also resembles the hybrid L. palustris x repens.
It is not clear what the name affix "Mesakana" refers to. Depending on the wholesaler it is sometimes also spelled "Messacana", "Messancana" or "Messicana" (the latter meaning "Mexican" in Italy). Hans-Georg Kramer (2009)generalreferences#2 coined the German expression "Bunte Ludwigie", which translates as "colourful Ludwigia".

In comparison to other varietys of L. repens and to L. palustris x repens, the leaves of L. repens "Mesakana" grow larger, and have a rounder form. They are also more colourful and have a more pronounced pattern. (read more)

Habe die Pflanze Freitagabends bestellt, wurde am Dienstag geliefert. Wunderschöne und kräftige Pflanze, ist zwar bisher grün aber die Rotfärbung ist schon leicht zu erkennen.
