The four varieties of ludwigia stem plants included in this combo pack are fast-growing and grow by using waste and pollutants in the water, making them an extremely effective part of your biological filtration. They have the potential to greatly reduce or even eliminate the need for water changes!
Each of these stem plants are fantastic for giving your aquarium a natural look. You can combine them with driftwood and river stones or natural-colored gravel to replicate a natural-looking aquatic ecosystem! They make a beautiful upgrade over plastic plants, which can look tacky and make your tank appear unnatural.
