Description

A natural hybrid from Ludwigia brevipes and L. palustris hardly known in Europe. It looks like a larger version of Ludwigia arcuata, with brown-orange submersed leaves. Easy to cultivate and a faster grower than L. arcuata and L. brevipes. It forms a nice, lush hedge in the midground and background.

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

Ludwigia x lacustris is a very rare natural hybrid of L. brevipes and L. palustris. It is found in some locations in the east and south-east of the USA. As aquarium plant, this narrow-leaved Ludwigia is not very well-known yet.
Curiously, some of the areas where L. x lacustris occurs are outside the distribution area of L. brevipes, which is mainly found in the south-east of Virginia as well as in North and South Carolina. Where L. x lacustris occurs in nature it grows abundantly and sometimes even outpopulates its parent species.

Ein tolle, sehr einfache Pflanze! Hatte sie vor Beckenneueinrichtung im alten Becken "zwischengelagert". 3-4 Wochen. Quasi keine Pflege, keine Düngung, nur Co2 und viel Licht. (read more)
