Ludwigia inclinata’Cuba’

  • High Light

  • Background Plant
  • High Growth Rate


The Cuban Ludwigia is a beautiful and large stem plant, that grows emersed or submerged in in swampy areas of the Isle of Youth, a small island off the coast of Cuba. If growing above the waterline, its leaves will be ovate shaped and green. If submerged, the leaves will instead be long and thin, and will display a marble pattern of red and orange. Like all varieties of Ludwigia, the Cuban will grow a distinctive and large yellow flower.

With sufficient light, CO2, and a well-balanced nutrient supply, this plant is a fast grower. 0.5 to 1.0 watt per litre of light is generally good. It needs plenty of iron, and without this, its shoots will come out whitish instead of green, and the plant’s growth will suffer.

The species tends to grow diagonally rather than straight up, and with its fast growth can begin to overtake an aquarium. It doesn’t respond well to trimming, and you should always replant the cut shoots in case you need to grow a replacement plant.

Overall, if you have a big enough tank, the Cuban Ludwigia is a beautifully colored and large plant that provides excellent accents in the midground or background of a tank.
