This floating Ludwigia is native to Central and South America, where it can be found growing in stagnant waters as well as in sections of riverine environments that are free of current. This species is a common pond plant and is also currently available through the aquatic plant nursery Oriental Aquariums. Ludwigia sedoides is sometimes known as the 'Mosaic Plant'.
Above all else, this floating stem plant requires light. Even values in the higher range of what is possible over a planted aquarium are often not enough. Outdoor culture in a well-lit pond or tub is sometimes the only way to achieve satisfactory growth with this species. Heavy fertilization with macro- and micronutrients is essential (if enough light is available) to produce attractive growth. Yellow flowers form on the floating rosettes if the plant is achieving good growth.
Propagation of Ludwigia sedoides can be carried out by snipping off a rosette, with a section of stem attached, from the main stem. The main stem may then develop another rosette.
Although the usefulness of this species in the aquascape is markedly limited, its beautiful circles of reddish foliage can lend a unique texture to outdoor ponds.
