Ludwigia Repens is an excellent choice for any aquascape. As far as stems go, this species is relatively undemanding given that CO2 is not required (but always helps). A basic planted tank setup should give you success with this species provided you have medium light and nutrients available within the water column. We recommend providing a nice balanced liquid fertilizer and if possible a nutrient rich substrate or root tabs.
This species has the capability of developing nice deep red colors. Reds often develop on the underside of the leaves, but can become more pronounced when provided high lighting, nutrients, and CO2.
