Ludwigia palustris – ludwigia arcuata
Ludwigia palustris is a stem plant that turns red easier and is smaller than the well-known Ludwigia repens ’Rubin’.
Ludwigia palustris creates many side shoots. If you cut the shoots off you can replant the stems. The cut-off shoots quickly generate new roots when planted.
The plant becomes intensely red and grows better when placed in light and with added CO2 or co2 supplement

Plant Weight included with all bunched plants.
Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that generally don’t come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry, although at times, my stem plants may come with roots because I have been growing them out. All stem plants come with a plant weight that holds the plant in place and is safe for your tank.
To plant, just let the weight lay on your substrate, and the stems will grow roots throughout your substrate. You can also plant the tips, about 1/4″ in your substrate if you prefer.
