Hi all,
My ludwigia tornado grows more in a branched and oblique fashion than vertical. Is this the normal growth pattern? Take a look at the photos. The photos were taken with LED
lights off and using a flashlight to single out the bunch better.

I have a 15 gallon with CO2, Fluval stratum w root tabs, Medium LED lighting (unsure. Got a finnex planted plus and a beamswork da fspec). Dosing Thrive daily (about 0.7mL daily). PO4 about 1ppm daily and getting rid of GSA.

Thanks

Got the answer on Facebook. Looks like this is normal growth pattern.

in my experience especially with EI dosing pretty much all ludwigia does that branching stuff. I found that if you want it to stop cut down the dosing and your lights and the plant will focus on growing up... you do sacrifice a little bit of color though
