This attractive stem plant was originally named Ludwigia sp. 'Atlantis'. Probably it belongs to Ludwigia palustris x repens. In its emersed form it shows a striking colour pattern with light yellow venation. The submerged leaves develop a beautiful yellow orange to dark orange coloration, depending on the light intensity.
As well as other stem plants, this colourful novelty should be planted with a larger number of stems to achieve a good effect. This Ludwigia is not demanding, however strong lighting and sufficient CO2 supply are guarantors for a good growth. The growth rate is moderate.
