Ludwigia senegalensis is considered by many one of the most beautiful Ludwigias. The plant has brick orange leaves with red veins and edges. This pattern is retained in old leaves and in many of the branches formed as well. The color and patterning make it a center-point for any midground.
- Origin - Distribution:
The transition from in-vitro to submersed form is more difficult than for many plants. It is recommended to add it to the aquarium once everything is sorted out (CO2, nitrification cycle, flow and fertilization).
It does better in bright light and has a moderate growth rate. For this reason, it seems to grow better in shallower tanks. It also seems more vibrant in softer water. This is one of the temperamental Ludwigias that can go from perfect health to problematic within the span of one day. Black/transparent spots will begin to develop on new leaves and if the deficiency is not corrected new growth will not develop correctly. The black/transparent spots on recent leaves have been associated by several people with deficiencies in micronutrients, although the exact missing micronutrient was not identified.
