Elevate your aquascape with Ludwigia sp. 'Crystal' tissue culture. Its translucent allure and easy care make it a prized addition to any aquarium. 

 

Ludwigia sp. 'Crystal', also known as Ludwigia sp. 'White', is a unique aquatic plant that has gained popularity among aquarium enthusiasts and aquascapers. However, the specific origin of this particular plant variety may vary due to cultivation and hybridization within the aquarium trade.

While Ludwigia sp. 'Crystal' does not have a specific natural habitat, it is believed to be a cultivated variant of the Ludwigia genus. The exact origin and lineage of this particular variant may not be well-documented, as it is often the result of selective breeding and propagation within the aquarium hobbyist community.

Ludwigia species are native to various regions around the world, including North and South America, Europe, and Asia. They are known for their vibrant colors and diverse leaf shapes. Ludwigia sp. 'Crystal' likely draws its name from the translucent appearance of its leaves, which resemble crystal-like structures when illuminated by light.

In the aquarium trade, Ludwigia sp. 'Crystal' is cultivated through tissue culture, allowing for consistent and healthy plants to be propagated and shared with aquarists around the world. Its unique and enchanting appearance has made it a sought-after choice for those looking to add an artistic and ethereal touch to their aquascapes.


 Like most plants, Crystal Ludwigia will benefit from supplementation such as Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, Flourish Nitrogen, Flourish Iron, and other plant supplements.

 

This listing is for the tissue culture form of Crystal Ludwigia. Tissue cultures are superior to traditional forms of aquarium plants in many ways. They are produced in a completely sterile environment which eliminates the possibility of them carrying pest snails or algae spores. They have a shelf life (before introduction to the aquarium) of several months if properly maintained and they are housed in a nutrient gel until introduced to the aquarium. To introduce a tissue culture plant to the aquarium, simply rinse off as much nutrient gel as possible, then plant as usual. The nutrient gel will not harm your aquarium.

      Current Handling Time:

      1-9 business days

      Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

      Shipping Rate

      Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
