Ludwigia Arcuata- Dark Red is a reddish stem plant that has a strong tendency to branch. Sufficient light is its principal requirement, though micronutrient fertilizers help to augment the red coloration of the shoot apexes and the undersides of the leaves. Sufficient macronutrients are typically derived from added fish foods, and the additions of nitrate, phosphate and potassium are often only necessary under conditions of high tank momentum with CO2 supplementation something which usually only marginally increases this species rate of growth. This said, L. arcuata is a terrific choice for non-CO2 aquaria. Since the species has a tendency to branch, quite a few of the side shoots can be trimmed off and replanted. The species may also be ‘topped’ and replanted; new shoots will develop at the nodes of the portion left in the substrate soon thereafter.Since the species is so thin in appearance, L. arcuata is most effectively planted in groupings that include at least half a dozen (and preferably more) shoots. These groupings, with their reddish and golden leaves, can be planted in the front and middle areas in the aquarium where they will show up best against a dark background or amongst other small leaved plants such as Hemianthus glomeratus or Rotala rotundifolia ‘Green’.
